SALE´TIO in Gallia. This name occurs in the Not. Imp., in the Antonine Itin. and in the Table. Ammianus (16.2) names it Saliso: “Argentoratum, Brocomagum, Tabernas, Salisonem, &c.” The Itin. places Saletio between Argentoratum (Strassburg) and Tabernae; and the Table places it between Tabernae and Brocomagus (Brumath), which is north of Strassburg. The numbers are not correct in the Itin.; but there is no doubt that the place is Setz near the Rhine. A diploma of Otho the Great names it “Salise in Elisazium,” in Elsaz or Alsace. (D'Arville, Notice, &c.)
