and now for the random OCD fact! did you ever want to know what the Ciminius mons is? It’s the range of volcanic mountains rising to just over 900 m (c. 3,000 ft.), which separate southern from central Etruria. A crater lake (lacus Ciminius: Lago di Vico) nestles amongst them. Q. Fabius Maximus Rullianus won fame by penetrating their awe-inspiring, thickly wooded slopes in 310 B.C. (Livy 9.36-9). Sutrium and Nepete are keys to the region.
by the way: i remembered tonight how much i dislike reading scholarship on sappho.
