Vadimōnis Lacus

Now Lago di Bassano; a small lake of Etruria, of a circular form, with sulphureous waters, and renowned for its floating islands. It is celebrated in history for the defeat of the Etruscans in two great battles, first by the dictator Papirius Cursor, in B.C. 309; and again in 283, when the allied forces of the Etruscans and Gauls were routed by the consul Cornelius Dolabella.
