(Ceglie di Bari) Apulia, Italy.
) places this city between Egnatia and Canusium,
and Ptolemy (3.1.73) lists it among the cities of Peucetia. The Peutinger Table
confirms the testimony of
Strabo and locates it ca. 14 km from Butuntum on the
Via Traiana, a distance corresponding to the position of
modern Ceglie del Campo, 8 km S of Bari, where there
are the ruins of the city walls. Coins with the legend
Kailinon are attributed to the city. A Latin inscription
indicates that Caelia was ascribed to the tribus Claudia
VI, 2382b, 33); another records an Augustalis
IX, 6197). Ager Caelinus also appears in the Libri
. Archaeological finds from the site
are in the museums at Bari and Taranto.
