2. Herennius Bassus, was one of the principal citizens of Nola in Campania. The ruling order in Nola was Sabellian (Liv. 9.28; Strab. v. p.249); but from its zealous emulation of Cumae and Neapolis, Nola was almost a Greek city (Dionys. A. R. 15.5. fragm. Mai), and thence may have proceeded its staunch preference of a Roman to a Carthaginian alliance: for Herennius was the spokesman of his fellow-citizens when, in B. C. 215, they rejected Hanno's proposals to revolt to Hannibal. (Liv. 23.43.)
