BURUNCUS a station on the left bank of the Rhine, between Cologne and Novesium (Neuss). The first place on the road to Novesium from Cologne, in the Antonine Itin. is Durnomagus, then Buruncus, and then Novesium. But D'Anville ingeniously attempts to show that Durnomagus and Buruncus should change places in the old road book, and thus Buruncus may be at Woringen or near it. Some of these obscure positions not worth the trouble of inquiry, especially when we observe that three critics differ from D'Anville, and each differs from the other as to the site of Buruncus.
