Attested: RC Masona
Where: Somewhere in south Devon, where RC’s sequence Apaunaris – Masona – Alovergium is very uncertain. Best guess = the Dart estuary.
Name origin: Greek μασσω ‘to knead, press into a mould’ might fit the unusual entrance of the Dart estuary, narrowly squeezed between cliffs. The –ona ending may mean ‘river’.
