M. Fulvius took the quarter of the town
The citadel of Same in Cephallenia taken by a night surprise,
in which was the citadel by a night surprise, and introduced the Romans into the town.1

1 See Livy, 38, 28, 29. The fragment here seems to be that translated by Livy in ch. 29,Romani nocte per arcem, quam Cyatidem vocant (nam urbs in mare devexa in Occidentem vergit) muro superato in forum pervenerunt.” The people of Same suddenly threw off the terms under which the rest of Cephallania had submitted and stood a four months' siege.
