GENU´SIUM

GENU´SIUM (Eth. Genusinus: Ginosa), a town of Apulia, not far from the frontiers of Lucania. It is mentioned by Pliny (3.11 s. 16). and by the author of the Liber de Coloniis (p. 262), of whom the latter reckons it among the towns of Calabria; but Pliny is correct in assigning it to Apulia. The site is marked by the modern town of Ginosa, which retrains the. name. It is about 15 miles from the gulf of Tarentum, and 10 from Matera.
