BRIVODU´RUM a place on a river, as the name imports. The place is perhaps Briare, on the right bank of the Loire, near Châtillon-sur-Loire. The Antonine Itin. and the Table place Belca between Brivodurum and Genabum (Orléans), and Condate, Cosne (Massava in the Table), between Brivodurum and Nevirnum (Nevers). There is the usual difficulty about the numbers. Walckenaer places Brivodurum at La, Villeneuve near Bonny. The road evidently followed the right bank of the Loire, as it does now from Nevers to Orléans.
