DIODO´RUM a town in Gallia, placed by the Antonine Itin. on the road from Rotomagus (Rouen) to Lutetia (Paris). It lies between Durocasses (Dreux) and Paris, 22 Gallic leagues from Dreux, and 15 from Paris. The place was on a stream, as we may [p. 1.777]infer from the termination dur; the first part of the name may be another form of Divo, as in Divodurum. Some geographers make the place Davron. D'Anville fixes on Jouare near Pontchartrain.
