Name of a city.[1] For the Noricians[2] are a people, where a divinely-sent monster of a boar was ravaging the land, and everyone who tried to attack it achieved nothing, until a certain man, turning the pig over, put it up on his shoulders, somewhat as the story is also related about Calydon.[3] And the Noricians shouted out "One man!" in their own language -- that is, [sc. in Latin] berounous [vir unus]. From this the city was called Berounion.
