Angers is first mentioned by Ptolemy around AD 150 in his Geography. It was then known as Juliomagus (Greek: Ιουλιομαγος), a name by which it also appears in the Tabula Peutingeriana. The name is a compound of the Latin name Julius and the Celtic magos, similar to Welsh "mojyn" ("magi"), Irish "mag", and Scottish Gaelic "maigh" ("plain"). In Gaulish, it was called ' or ', from which later came Old French ' (Modern French Ange) and English Anjou. The Latin name ""Ania"" has been since pre-Roman times when the city was called Ansio (from *Ansionā). This appellation continued after Gallo-Roman times as * on its way to becoming Angers; this change of vowel occurred simultaneously with that affecting many other words ending in "-nns".
