SATICULA Campania, Italy.

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.


L. Forti, RendNap NS 23 (1946-48) 203-23.
