MAROBU´DUM

MAROBU´DUM (Μαρόβουδον), a town of the Marcomanni in Bohemia (Ptol. 2.11.29), and undoubtedly identical with the royal residence of Maroboduus, with a fortress attached to it, mentioned by Tacitus. (Ann. 2.62.) The same place, or rather the fortress, is called by Strabo (vii. p.290) Buiaemon, and is identified with the modern Budweis, in Bohemia.
