Longula Ancient Volscian Town

Longula was a town in ancient times in the territory of the Volsci in central Italy.[1] It was located south of Rome, and just north of the Volscian capital Antium.[2]

In 493 BC it was captured by a Roman army under the command of the consul Postumus Cominius Auruncus.[3][4]

In around 488 BC it was retaken by the Volsci.[5]
