Attested: Vindomi on iter 15 of the Antonine Itinerary (accidentally duplicated in iter 12)
Where: Neatham Roman settlement at SU740412 where the Roman road from Chichester to Silchester crossed the river Wey.
Name origin: Vindo ‘pleasant’ plus an element related to Latin meo ‘to go’, from PIE *mei-, which Watkins (2011) described as “with derivatives referring to the exchange of goods and services within a society as regulated by custom or law”.
Notes: Evidently a Roman precursor of a roadside service station!
