MORIDU´NUM in Britain, placed both by the Antonine Itin. and Geogr. Rav. near Isca of the Dumnonii (Exeter) : it was one of the stations termed mansiones and mutationes, probably the latter ; its site has by no means been agreed upon by [p. 2.372]topographers, and three or four localities have been proposed. Of these, Seaton and Hembury, near Honiton, appear to have the best claims for consideration; but as the stations next to large towns were often merely establishments for relays of horses and other purposes connected with posting, they were the least likely to be constructed on a large or substantial scale; and thus we have often great difficulty in detecting even a vestige of them.
