Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 16 E2 Costa Balenae

The Barrington Atlas compiler followed Coradi 1968 in locating this site, attested in both the Antonine Itinerary and the Peutinger map, at modern Lacosta-San Remo in Italy. More recent work and archaeological finds now encourage a tentative association with a site at Capo Don, further east. The Barrington also followed earlier scholarship in correcting the name to Costa Ballenae on the grounds that the forms transmitted to us must have corrupted a name based on the word balena ("whale"); however, newer thinking holds that these witnesses may more accurately transmit a name related to Bellenus, allegedly a pre-Roman Ligurian divinity.
