), a town of Calabria, mentioned both by Pliny and Ptolemy among the municipal towns of that region. (Plin. Nat. 3.11. s. 16
; Ptol. 3.1.77
.) Its name is not otherwise known, but it is supposed to be represented by the modern village of Sternaccio,
about 10 miles S. of Lecce

(Soletum). (Cluver. Ital.

There exist coins with the inscription ΣΤΥ,
and types resembling those of the Tarentines, which are ascribed to Sturnium.
