Now Rocca di Mandragone; the last city of Latium on the confines of Campania, to which it originally belonged, was situated on the sea-coast and on the Via Appia. It was colonized by the Romans, together with the neighbouring town of Minturnae, in B.C. 296. It possessed a good harbour, and was a place of considerable commercial importance. In its neighbourhood were celebrated warm baths, called Aquae Sinuessanae (Tac. Ann. xii. 66).
