A Samnite site
on the borders of Campania; S. Agata de' Goti (province
of Benevento) is usually identified as its arx. The Romans
took it in 315 B.C., and a Latin colony was sent there in
313. A large necropolis 2 km from S. Agata has been
repeatedly explored, intensively in 1771-1811. The finds
led to a classification of pottery, believed to be of local
manufacture, as Saticula I, II, and III. More recently
this has been proved false, and none of this pottery is
now considered local.
