VIRACELLUM

VIRACELLUM (Βιράκελλον, Ptol.), a town of Etruria, mentioned only by Ptolemy (3.1.47), who places it among the inland towns in the NW. corner of that country. It is supposed by Cluverius to be represented by Verrucola or Verrucchia in the mountains between the Serchio and the Magra (Cluver. Ital. p. 75), but the identification is very doubtful.
