Extract

Ameria (mod. Amelia), hill-town of southern *Umbria. Although very ancient (Plin. HN 3. 114), it is first mentioned by Cicero (Rosc. Amer. 15, 19, 20, 25), in whose day it was a prosperous *municipium. It remained such in imperial times. Its massive polygonal walls are still well preserved.
