Eth. BELENDI a people of Aquitania, mentioned by Pliny (4.19), whose name appears to be preserved in that of Bélin, a small place in the Landes, between Bordeaux and Bayonne. The place is called Belinum in some old documents, and the passage of the river Pons Belini. Bélin is on the small river Leyre, in the department of Les Landes, which runs through the dreary Landes into the Bassin d'Arcachon.
