RAURANUM in Gallia, is placed by the Table and the Antonine Itin. on a direct road from Mediolanum Santonum (Saintes) to Limonum (Poitiers). It is Raurana in the Table, but the name Rauranum occurs in a letter of Paulinus to Ausonius (Ep. IV. ad Auson. 5.249), who places it “Pictonicis in arvis.” The place is Rom or Raum, near Chenay, nearly due south of Poitiers. (D'Anville, Notice, &c.; Ukert, Gallien, p. 392.)
