AQUAE CUTILIAE, a mineral spring in Italy, near the modern Cittaducale, 9 M. E. of Rieti. The lake near it was supposed by classical writers to be the central point of Italy, and was renowned for its floating islands, which, as in other cases, were formed from the partial petrification of plants by the mineral substances contained in the water. Considerable remains of baths may still be seen thereā€¢ they were apparently resorted to by both Vespasian and Titus in their last illnesses, for both died there.
