Minturno is a city and comune in the southern Lazio, Italy, situated on the north west bank of the Liris (also known as the Garigliano), with a suburb on the opposite bank about 18km from its mouth, at the point where the Via Appia crossed it by the bridge called Pons Tiretius.It has a station on the Rome-Naples main railway line.HistoryThe ancient Minturnae was one of the three towns of the Ausones which made war against Rome in 314 BC, the other two being called Ausona and Vescia; and the Via Appia was made two years later.It became a colony in 296 BC.In 88 BC, Gaius Marius hid himself in the marshes of Minturnae in his flight from Sulla.The city was probably destroyed in 883 by the Saracens, who in the following years held the surrounding plain. Its low site was increasingly abandoned by the population in favour of that of the modern town of Minturno, 140m above sea-level.The Saracens were ousted by the Catholic league after the Battle of Garigliano, and Minturnae passed to Gaeta. Two years later, however, it was again ravaged, this time by the Magyars. In 1058 it was partly acquired by the Abbey of Montecassino, but soon after was conquered by the Normans.
