Near those mountains which lie above Luna is a city, Luca, although some of people here live only in villages; nevertheless the country has a goodly store of men, and the greater part of the soldiery comes from here, and also the majority of those men of equestrian rank from whom the Senate recuits its ranks. Derton is a considerable city, and it is situated about midway of the road which runs from Genua to Placentia, being four hundred stadia distant from each; and this is the road on which Acquae Statiellae is situated. Of the distance from Placentia to Ariminum I have alredy spoken; there is also a voyage thence by the Padus down to Ravenna which takes two days and nights. Now a considerable part of Cispadana too used to be covered by marshes ( through which Hannibal, on his advance against Tyrrhenia, possed only with difficulty); but Scaurus drained the plains by running navigable canals from the Padus as far as Parma; for near Placentia the Padus is joined by the Trebia, as also before that by several other rivers, and is thus made excessively full. This Scaurus is the man who constructed the Aemilian Way, which runs through Pisa and Luna as far as Sabata an thence through Derton; there is another Aemilian Way, however I mean the which succeeds the Flaminiam. For Marcus Lepidus and Gaius Flaminius were consuls together, and, upon subjugating the Ligures, the latter constructed the Flaminiam Way from Rome through Tyrrhenia and Ombrica as far as the regions of Ariminum, and the former the succeeding road that runs as far as Bononia, and from there, along the base of the Alps, thus encircling the marshes to Aquileia. Now the boundary of all this country which we call Cisalpine Celtica – I mean the boundary between it and the remainder of Italy – was once designated by that part of the Apennine Mountains which is beyond Tyrrhenia, and also by the River Aesis, but later on by Rubicon; both this rivers empty into the Adriatic.

  • 2 Since, then, the Ligures were partly Ingauni and partly Intemelii, writers add, it was reasonable for their settlements on the sea to by named, the one, Albium (the equivalent of Alpium) Intemelium, and the other, more concisely, Albingaunum. Polibyus, however adds to the two aforesaid tribes of the Ligures both that of the Oxybii and that of the Decietae, spiking generally this whole coastline, from the Port of Monoecus as far as Tyrrhenia, is not only exsposed to the wind but harbourless as well, except for shallow mooring-palces and anchorages. And lying above it are the enormous beetling cliffs of the mountains, which leave only a narrow pass next to the sea. This country is occupied by the Ligures, who live on sheep, for the most part, and milk, an a drink made of barley; they pasture their flocks in the districts next to the sea, but mainly in the mountains.



LA VIA POSTUMIA

  • LA VIA POSTUMIA

  • L’iscrizione, incisa su un miliario conservato presso il Museo Maffeiano di Verona, ricorda la costruzione nel 148 a.C. della via Postumia, che unì il mar Ligure all’Adriatico, come strada militare di arroccamento nel quadro delle operazione belliche che i Romani condussero contro i Liguri.
