CINGI´LIA a town of the Vestini, mentioned only by Livy (8.29), among the places taken by the Roman consul, Junius Brutus, in B.C. 325. Its site is quite uncertain, as well as that of Cutina, mentioned in the same passage: Romanelli (vol. iii. p. 284) would place the latter at Civitella near Civita Aquana; and Cingilia at Civita Retenga, about 5 miles SE. of Ansedonia (Peltuinum). The names Civita and Civitella always denote ancient sites, but the identification is wholly conjectural.
