Atlas Adjustment: Lauriacum and Blaboriciaco

The alternate name Blaboriciaco for Lauriacum (mod. Lorch in Austria) was misplaced and mistyped in the Map-by-Map Directory for “Map 12: Mogontiacum-Reginum-Lauriacum.” The entry for this alternate must be updated, and the spelling corrected.

Adjust the entry for Lauriacum on page 175 of the Map-by-Map Directory to include Blaboriciaco, as follows:

Grid Name Period Modern Name / Location Reference
A2 Laugona? fl. See Map 11
H4 Lauriacum
§ Blaboriciaco
RL Lorch AUS Genser 1986, 126-64
H4 Lentia RL Linz AUS Genser 1986, 99-125

Remove the erroneous entry for “Blaboriaco = Lauriacum” from the Unlocated Toponyms list on page 181 so that it reads as follows:

Please note that our update entries follow the conventions of the Barrington Atlas in the formatting of placenames; i.e., modern placenames are presented in italics, ancient placenames in regular type.
