AttestedTermonin at position 17 in the Ravenna Cosmography

Where:  Probably the small Roman fort at Topsham, beside the river Exe at SX96128865, serving as the port for the legionary fortress at Exeter, listed before it in the Cosmography.

Name Origin:  Latin terminus ‘end’, perhaps intended to end in -on like so many names in the Cosmography but scribally mangled.  This port was at the end of a Roman road from Exeter.
