NOVE´SIUM a fortified place on the Gallic side of the Rhine, which is often mentioned by Tacitus (Tac. Hist. 4.26, 33, 35, &c., 5.22). It is also mentioned in the Antonine Itin. and in the Table. There is no difficulty about the position of Novesium, which is Neuss, between Colonia Agrippina (Cöln) and Gelduba (Gelb or Gellep). [GELDUBA] Novesium fell into ruins, and was repaired by Julian, A.D. 359. (Amm. Marc. 18.2.)
