in the country of the Helvetii, is placed in the Itins. between Aventicum (Avenches
) and Salodurum (Solothurn
); at the distance of xiii. in the Anton. Itin. from Aventicum and xiiii. in the Table; and at the distance of x. from Salodurum in both the Itineraries. Some geographers have placed Petinesca at a place named Büren;
but the distance does not agree with that given by the Itins. between Petinesca and Salodurum, as D'Anville observes, who also says that the position of Bienne (Biel
) corresponds to the ancient numbers, if we take them to indicate Gallic leagues. Cluver also placed Petinesca at Biel.
