CIMRM entry

Note: Vermaseren has not quite understood the statements by Cumont. If you read these, it seems that the bridge is at the point where the Roman road going north from Antioch splits into two, one heading north to Cyrrhus and Commagene, the other branching north-east to Zeugma and Mesopotamia.
