ICULISMA a place in Gallia, mentioned by Ausonius (Ep. 15.22). as a retired and lonely spot where his friend Tetradius, to whom he addresses this poetical epistle, was at one time engaged in teaching:-- “Quondam docendi munere adstrictum gravi
Iculisma cum te absconderet.

It is assumed to be the place called Civitas Ecolismensium in the Notitia Prov. Gall., which is Angoulême, in the French department of Charente, on the river Charente.
