PENNELOCUS in the Antonine Itin., and PENNOLUCOS in the Peutinger Table, is a place in Gallia in the country of the Nantuates, between Viviscus (Vevay) and Tarnaja (St. Maurice). In the Itins. the distance of Pennelocus from Viviscus is marked viiii.; but it is uncertain whether they are Roman miles or Gallic leagues. It is generally assumed that Villeneuve at the eastern end of the Lake of Geneva is the site of Pennelocus, but the distance from Vevay does not agree. D'Anville found in some old maps a place called Penne on the direction of the road, but the position of Penne does not agree with the distances in the Itins. Pennelocus was in the Vallis Pennina or the Valais.
