Regillus Lacus

A lake in Latium, memorable for the victory gained on its banks by the Romans over the Latins, B.C. 498 (Livy, ii. 19). It was east of Rome, in the territory of Tusculum, and between Lavicum and Gabii; but it cannot be identified with certainty with any modern lake, though it was probably the same as the Lago di Cornufelle. Macaulay's stirring ballad on the battle is well known to English readers.
