SESTINUM (Sestino) Umbria, Italy.

A site near the headwaters of the river Pisaurus. It is mentioned only by Pliny (HN 3.114), but inscriptions show that it belonged to the tribus Clustumina, and the site still preserves its ancient name. Its graves go back to the 6th c. B.C., and inscriptions attest a flourishing life through the 4th c. of our era. There is a small Antiquarium Sestinate adjacent to the Pieve.
