CO´RBILO (Κορβίλων), a trading town in Gallia, [p. 1.669]on the Loire. It was a flourishing place in. the time of Pytheas. (Strab. p. 190.) No extant writer except Strabo mentions the place. De Valois and D'Anville would fix it at Coeron, about two leagues below Nantes, and on the same side of the river. Walckenaer supposes that it may be Corsep, because Corsep is nearer the mouth of the Loire; but Strabo simply says that. Corbilo was on the river.
