Ch.37: Nuceriae

According to history, around the sixth century BC the local people Oscans founded the ancient city of Nuceria, located between the provinces of Naples and Salerno;  a very interesting site due to its favorable geographic position because it is next to water sources and a very fertile country, since in full Vesuvius as well as protected by the mountain range of the Amalfi and Sorrento coast.  As for the etymology of the name, a theory, always based on the story told by Servius, is that the ancient inhabitants of Nuceria wanted to remember their place of origin, place that historians locate Palestine on the shores of Saron River, the city of Sarnos Illyria, fastest explanation because the assumptions are many.
