ICTODURUM in Gallia. The Antonine Itin. places Caturiges (Chorges) on the road between Ebrodunum (Embrun) and Vapincum (Gap); and the Table adds Ictodurum between Caturigomagus, which is also Chorges, and Vapincum. We may infer from the name that Ictodurum is some stream between Chorges and Gap; and the Table places it half-way. The road distance is more than the direct line. By following the road from either of these places towards the other till we come to the stream, we shall ascertain its position. D'Anville names the small stream the Vence; and Walckenaer names the site of Ictodurum, La Bastide Vieille.
