ORIGINS OF LETTERE

ORIGINS OF LETTERE

The origin of Lettere is certainly from the Roman period: the most accredited hypothesis is that Lucio Cornelio Silla, Roman General during the Social War camped on a hill above the Stabian city, building a fort, where the letters from the Roman Senate were delivered that praised him for the enterprises and the conquests carried out. From such event some historians suppose that the name of the city is derived, while others associate it to the term lactar, as testified by Cassiodoro and Procopius, which described the area as optimal for grazing sheep and cows from which to make milk. In 1976, following some archaeological excavations, tombs of a Roman necropolis were discovered in Lettere, in which a oil lamps, vases and various funerary inscriptions belonging to the Corneli, Prisci and Valerii families were found.
