Teanum Apulum (modrtn S. Paolo), in central Italy, a *Daunian city, originally called Teate. It was on the borders between Daunian and Frentanian territory and shows signs of Oscanization (see OSCANS) by the 4th century bce, notably in issues of coins with *Oscan legends. It fought against Rome in the Second Samnite War (see SAMNIUM), but became an ally in 318 bce and remained loyal thereafter. The Daunian city was fortified with an 11-km. (7-mi.) earth rampart and is similar to *Arpi in size and structure. A Roman aqueduct and temple have been discovered.
