LAVISCO or LABISCO, in Gallia Narbonensis, appears on a route from Mediolanum (Milan) through Darantasia (Moutiers en Tarentaise) to Vienna (Vienne) on the Rhone. Lavisco is between Lemincum (Lemens, or Chambéry au Mont Leminc) and Augustum (Aoste or Aouste), and 14 M. P. from each. D'Anville supposes that Lavisco was at the ford of the little river Laisse, near its source ; but the distance between Lemincum and Augustum, 28 M. P. is too much, and accordingly he would alter the figures in the two parts of this distance on each side of Lavisco, from xiiii. to viiii.
