The places mentioned by Sigeric.
|48 - 1
For Antifern (56) many possible places are indicated.
Veronica Ortenberg describes the hamlet of Entre-les-Fourgs as the most likely candidate (page 240).However, this choice does not seem logical. The route from Orbe to Jougne is also possible by going around the ridge where Entre-les-Fourgs is located.
Both distances have about the same length, but the route via Entre-les-Fourgs, adds about 350 altimeters. So it seems more logical to descend after the Col de Jougne.
Furthermore a Roman road has been identified in Ballaigues, and this is not on the route via Entre-les-Fourgs.
Height profile of both possibilities.
For Burbulei (52) also many possibilities have been mentioned.Looking at the heavily canalized Rhone and the completely flat country from the Lac Léman to Saint-Maurice, it is inevitable that this was a marshy delta. The Roman road lies on the eastern side of the valley. Where Burbulei really was located is unclear, but probably on the east side of the valley at the foot of the mountains.At Saint-Maurice the valley of the Rhone narrows. It must have been easy to get here to the other bank with a bridge.
There are no comments for the Italian cities.
