John Conington, Commentary on Vergil's Aeneid, Volume 2, P. VERGILI MARONIS, line 752 (search)
Pliny 3. 12. 17 mentions a story told by Gellianus of a town Archippa, founded by Marsyas, and swallowed up by the waters of lake Fucinus.

Angitia, not Anguitia is the spelling of this name attested by inscriptions and the best MSS. The spelling Anguitia probably arose from a supposed connexion of the name with anguis: it is more probably connected with ancus. The chief seat of the worship of this goddess was the shore of the lake Fucinus: but inscriptions Angitiis, Angitiae, Dis . . . Ancitibus, have been found elsewhere. (Preller, Römische Mythologie. p. 362.) She was said to be a daughter of Aeetes, sister or niece of Circe and sister of Medea, who taught the Marsians the use of drugs. Comp. the connexion of Circe with Italy v. 10 above.

Next after these, his brows and helmet bound with noble olive, from Marruvium came a priest, brave Umbro, ordered to the field by King Archippus: o'er the viper's brood, and venomed river-serpents he had power to scatter slumber with wide-waving hands and wizard-songs. His potent arts could soothe their coiling rage and heal the mortal sting: but 'gainst a Trojan sword no drug had he, nor could his drowsy spells his flesh repair, nor gathered simples from the Marsic hills. Thee soon in wailing woods Anguitia mourned, thee, Fucinus, the lake of crystal wave, thee, many a mountain-tarn!

and also proposed to reduce the civil law to a reasonable compass, and out of that immense and undigested mass of statutes to extract the best and most necessary parts into a few books; to make as large a collection as possible of works in the Greek and Latin languages, for the public use; the province of providing and putting them in proper order being assigned to Marcus Varro. He intended likewise to drain the Pomptine marshes, to cut a channel for the discharge of the waters of the lake Fucinus, to form a road from the Upper Sea through the ridge of the Appenine to the Tiber; to make a cut through the isthmus of Corinth, to reduce the Dacians, who had over-run Pontus and Thrace, within their proper limits, and then to make war upon the Parthians, through the Lesser Armenia, but not to risk a general engagement with them, until he had made some trial of their prowess in war. But in the midst of all his undertakings and projects, he was carried off by death; before I speak of which,

He completed some important public works, which, though, not numerous, were very useful. The principal were an aqueduct, which had been begun by Caius; an emissary for the discharge of the waters of the Fucine lake, The Fucine Lake is now called Lago di Celano, in the Farther Abruzzi. It is very extensive, but shallow, so that the difficulty of constructing the Claudian emissary, can scarcely be compared to that encountered in a similar work for lowering the level of the waters in the Alban lake, completed A. U. C. 359. and the harbour of Ostia; although he knew that Augustus had refused to comply with the repeated application of the Marsians for one of these; and that the other had been several times intended by Julius Caesar, but as often abandoned on account of the difficulty of its execution. He brought to the city the cool and plentiful springs of the Claudian water, one of which is called Caeruleus. and the other Curtius and Albudinus, as likewise the river of the New Anio, in
