Aletrium
(64 words)

[German version]

City in the area of the  Hernici (Plin. HN 3,63), today Alatri. Like Ferentinum and Verulae, A. did not participate in 307-306 BC in the war of the Hernici against Rome (Liv. 9,42,11) and was therefore rewarded like them with autonomy and  conubium (Liv. 9,43,23). A few structural ruins, i.a. an aqueduct and wall.
