Of Narbonia. chap. 110.

A Part of Fraunce that lyeth vppon the sea of middle earth, is called Narbon, as Isidore sayth, and hath that name of the riuer Narbo, that depar∣teth that lande and Italy in one side, and mountaines Alpes departe that lande and Italye in that side. And now some men call that lande Gallia Bra∣chata. No prouince is worthy to bée set before Narbon in araye of men, in worthynesse of manners and thewes, in plentie of riches: and shortlye to speake, it should more fréelye be called Italye thén a prouince. Therein be most noble riuers: among whom the French Rodan is most plenteous. And com∣meth out of ye mountaines and runneth by the Prouince of Narbon: therein bée many ponds and hauens and forlands: a∣mong whō Marcel is chiefe. The length of all the prouince of Narbon conteineth thrée hundred & tree score thousand pa∣ces, as Agrippa saith, Hue vsque Pli∣nius.

(*Narbonensis prouincia, a parte of Gallia, hauing on the East the moun∣taines Alpes: on the South Mare Gal∣licum: on the West the mountaines Pi∣renei: on the North, the mountaines Iura. It conteyneth the countryes cal∣led Sauoy, Dolphyny, Prouince, and Languedocke. It was in the olde time called Gallia grachata.)
