PONTES in North Gallia, is placed in the Ant. Itin. on a road from Samarobriva (Amiens) to Gesoriacum (Boulogne): it is 36 M. P. from Samarobriva to Pontes, and 39 M. P. from Pontes to Gesoriacum. The Table, which marks a road between Samarobriva and Gesoriacum, does not place Pontes on it, but it has another place, named Duroicoregum, supposed to be Douriers on the Authie. D'Anville concludes that Pontes is Ponches on the Authie, at which. place we arrive by following the traces of the old road which still exists under the name of Chausseé de Brunéhaut.
