AQUAE APOLLINA´RES was the name given to some warm springs between Sabate and Tarquinii, in Etruria, where there appears to have been a considerable thermal establishment. They are evidently the same designated by Martial (6.42. 7) by the poetical phrase of “Phoebi vada.” The Tab. Pent. places them on the upper road from Rome to Tarquinii at the distance of 12 miles from the latter city, a position which accords with the modern Bagni di Stigliano. Cluverius confounds them with the AQUAE CAERETANAE now Bagni del Sasso, which were indeed but a few miles distant. (Holsten. not ad Cluver. p. 35.)
