VINDALUM or VINDALIUM (Οὐίνδαλον), in Gallia Narbonensis, a place where Domitius Ahenobarbus defeated the Allobroges, B.C. 121. [GALLIA TRANSALPINA Vol. I. p. 954.] Strabo (iv. p.185) says that Vindalum is at the confluence of the Sulgas [SULGAS] and the Rhône. Florus (3.2) names this river Vindalicus or Vindelicus. The Sulgas is the Sorgue. D'Anville, relying, as he often does, on a mere resemblance of name, would place Vindalium at Vedene, which is about a mile from the junction of the Sorgue and the Rhône. Others would place Vindalium at Port de la Traille, the place where the Sorgue joins the Rhône.
