Note 027
From Chapter 52 of the Decline & Fall

Mamaccae, on the Oyse, between Compiegne and Noyon, which Eginhart calls

perparvi reditûs villam, (see the notes, and the map of ancient France for Dom. Bouquet's Collection).

Compendium, or Compiegne, was a palace of more dignity (Hadrian. Valesii Notitia Galliarum, p. 152), and that laughing philosopher, the Abbe Galliani (Dialogues sur le Commerce des Bleds), may truly affirm, that it was the residence of the rois très Chretiens en très chevelûs.
