URVINUM HORTENSE (Collemancio) Umbria, Italy.

A municipium of the tribus Stellatina, situated on a hill overlooking the Clitumnus valley from the W. The epithet Hortense is odd, and the relation to Urvinum Metaurense is obscure. It was presumably here, not at Urvinum Metaurense, that Vitellius' lieutenant Fabius Valens was killed (Tac. Hist. 3.62). Excavations have uncovered a road, a stylobate of a Republican temple, and part of an Imperial baths (or villa) 300 m N of the modern village.


EAA 7 (1966) 1078 (U. Ciotti).
