Eth. FORUM DECII a town of the Sabines, mentioned only by Pliny (3.12. s. 17), the site of which is wholly unknown. It has been identified by Cluver with the “Foroecri” of the Tabula; but there is no authority for this, and the latter name is probably corrupted from Forocrea or Forocria, analogous to Interocrea. (Cluver, Ital. p. 690; Holsten. Not. ad Cluv. p. 118.) It is more probable that Forum Decii was situated much further S., in the neighbourhood of Forum Novum (Vescovio).
