Now Vicenza; a town in the south of Campania at the head of the Sinus Paestanus. The name
of Picentini was not confined to the inhabitants of Picentia, but was given to the inhabitants
of the whole coast of the Sinus Paestanus, from the promontory of Minerva to the river
Silarus. They were a portion of the Sabine Picentes, who were transplanted by the Romans to
this part of Campania after the conquest of Picenum, B.C. 268, at which time they founded the
town of Picentia.
