MARCILIA´NA a station on the Via Popillia, in Lucania, where, according to the Tabula, that road (which led directly S. from Campania into Bruttium) was joined by a branch from Potentia. The name is corrupted both in the Tabula and in the Antonine Itinerary; but there can be no doubt that the place meant is the same called by Cassiodorus “Marcilianum,” which was a kind of suburb of the town of Consilinum, where a great fair was annually held. (Itin. Ant. p. 110; Tab. Peut.; Cassiod. Varr. 8.33.) The site is still called Marciliana, in the valley of the Tanagro, between La Sala and Padula. (Romanelli, vol. i. p. 405.)
