BATIA´NA in Gallia Narbonensis, is placed in the Table between Acunum (Ancone) and Valentia (Valence). It appears in the geographer of Ravenna, under the name Vatiana. D'Anville fixes the position at Baix, on the west bank of the Rhone; but Walckenaer (Géog. &c, vol. ii. p. 204) places it opposite to Baix, at a place named Banes, which is the same name as the Vancianis of the Jerusalem Itin. Probably there was a road on both sides of the river between Valentia and Acunum.
