Attested: RC Durobrisin
Where: Scole, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, where AI’s itinera 5 and 9, Roman roads 3c and 3d of Margary, (1973) and medieval Pye Road, now the A140, crossed the river Waveney at TM146785.
Name origin: Duro- ‘crossing’. The –brisin part resembles OE brice ‘breach’, from PIE *bhreiə- ‘to cut’, describing how the Waveney (in spate) there makes much of Norfolk into an island.
Notes: R&S went completely wrong on this name. Villa Faustini was nearby.
