An ancient city of Roman Britannia, recorded by Ptolemy. Its precise location is uncertain, but the mouth of the homonymous river (also recorded by Ptolemy) is widely agreed to be the modern Plymouth Sound; there are therefore several candidate sites for the city in the valley of the modern Tamar river, the most likely of which to date is the Roman fort at Calstock.
