IBIO´NES

Eth. IBIO´NES, VIBIO´NES (Ἰβιώνες, al. Οὐιβιώνες, Ptol. 3.5.23), a Slavonian people of Sarmatia Europaea, whom Schafarik (Slav. Alt. vol. i. p. 213) looks for in the neighbourhood of a river Iva-Iviza-Ivinka, of which there are several in Russia deriving their name from “iwa” == “Salix Alba,” or the common white willow.
