Attested: Novitia in RC's list of harbour estuaries.
Where: From its position in RC's list Novitia must be the Border Esk, with its mouth into the north of the Solway estuary at about NY3266, near Gretna.
Name Origin: See here about rivers called *Navis, *Novis, etc. Novitia looks like a plural or abstract noun, which is part of the reason to think it was the Esk.
Notes: See also about the Νοουανται tribe and their peninsula and promontory, and the rivers Νοουιου and Anava.
