page 254 note 3 When, in company with Fell and Rosi, I walked from Tuscania to Valentano, where some authorities place Maternum, and past the Lago di Mezzano to Pitigliano and Sovana in 1923, we were unable to discover any traces of any ancient road: so that I cannot offer any opinion as to the real or probable site of Maternum. Owing to the nature of the country, no trace of ancient roads seems to be preserved except within a radius of a mile or two from Saturnia, which stands on limestone.
