MAESIA SILVA

MAESIA SILVA a forest of Etruria, in the territory of the Veientines, which was conquered from them by Ancus Marcius. (Liv. 1.33.) Its site cannot be determined with certainty, but it was probably situated on the right bank of the Tiber, between Rome and the sea-coast. Pliny also notices it as abounding in dormice. (Plin. Nat. 8.58. s. 83.)
