TELESIA [mod. Telese], a town of the Samnites, 24 M. N.W. from Beneventum. It possesses remains of walls in opus reticulatum, of a total length of over a mile; two inscriptions of the Republican period record the erection of towers. The remains of baths (Thermae Sabinianae) and of an amphitheatre still exist: and the city was supplied with water by an aqueduct. There are sulphur springs in the vicinity, which may have sup-plied the baths.
