Cities in ancient Italy

While studying Livius I came across a lot of places I didn't know where to place. While trying to make a proper map, I found the list below in this book, first published in 1813. Since then a number of these places changed their name (again) or disappeared. I tried to identify the obscure ones and put the proper names as far as possible in the right spot. If you find a mistake please let me know. In the near future I'll synchronize this map with this list.
