German term or phrase: Petronell
The text talks about Carnuntum, a Roman settlement in Austria, "knapp 60 km. bei Petronell". Does Petronell have an English name?

Explanation:
Petronell is a modern place name. Carnuntum is the old Roman site, near the present village. I am surprised by the distance, as I should have thought both were closer to Vienna than that. They are only about 20 mins. drive.

I wish I could award the two of you, you've both been so helpful. But I guess it helps me more to know its a modern name I don't have to latinize or anything.

Petronell


Explanation:
It appears to be a proper name which is maintained in English. See: To Carnuntum. You can reach this either by train (from Bahnhof Landstrasse to Petronell-Carnuntum) or by bus (from the Busbahnhof, Landstrasse-Wien Mitte). Traveling by car, take the Ostautobahn (A4) and pass the airport. At Fischamend get off the A4 and go on B9 east in the direction of Hainburg. Between Petronell and Bad Deutsch-Altenberg is the second-century Roman capital of Pannonia, Carnuntum. From Petronell drive south to Rohrau, the birthplace of Josef Haydn. You can visit his restored birthplace, with a collection of the composer's original scores, and also the 16th-century castle of the Harrach family, with its fine private collection of European paintings.
