Eth. DOBU´NI (Δοβουνοί), a people in Britain, mentioned [p. 1.781]by Ptolemy twice: first (2.3.25), as being conterminous to the east with the Silures, and as having Corineum (Cirencester) for their city; next (2.3.28), as, lying to the north of the Belgae, one of whose towns was the Hot Springs (Ὕδατα θερμά) == Bath. This places them in Gloucestershire. The Boduni of Dio Cassius are generally, and reasonably, believed to be the Dobuni, under another form (9.20).
