Now Chiusi; a town of Etruria, on the banks of the Clanis. Its more ancient name was Camers. The Gauls under Brennus besieged it, but marched to Rome without taking it. It was at Clusium that Porsenna held his court; and near this city he erected for himself the splendid mausoleum or labyrinth of which Pliny has transmitted to us a description on the authority of Varro. See Labyrinthus.
