Eth. FORUM CLODII
a town of Etruria, situated (as might be inferred from its name) upon the Via Clodia, known to us chiefly from the Itineraries, but mentioned also by Ptolemy (3.1.50
) among the towns of Southern Etruria. The Antonine Itinerary reckons it 32 M.P. from Rome, and the Tab. Peut. places it between Sabate and Blera; but the distances given in the Tabula are confused or corrupt. Hence its position has not been clearly ascertained; it is commonly placed at Oriuolo,
about five miles N. of Bracciano
(Sabate); but, according to Mr. Dennis, there are no ancient remains at that place, and the point is still doubtful. (Itin. Ant.
p. 286; Tab. Peut.;
vol. i. p. 273.)
