A station in Gallia Narbonensis, the distance of which from a given point determined its name, as we see in the case of other names of places derived from numerals. [DUODEOCIMUM, AD; VIENNA.] The place is xx. M. P. from Narbo (Narbonne) on the road to Spain, and may be at or near a place called La Palme.


There is another Ad Vigesimum which occurs in the Itin. of Bordeaux to Jerusalem, on the road from Toulouse, These numerals show that such cities [p. 2.1310]had the privilege of reckoning their roads from the capital to the limit of their territories, where a Fines often occurs. [FINES] (D'Anville, Notice, &c.) [G.L]
