BRIVAS a town of the Arverni, is mentioned by Sidonius Apollinaris (Carm. 24.16):--“Hinc te suscipiet benigna Brivas.”

The place is Brioude on the Allier. Some authorities speak of a Roman bridge there, and say that the old church was built in the time of Constantine. The name Brivas indicates the passage of a river. [G.L] [p. 1.443]
