A town of the Aequi along the Marsic frontier where the Romans established a Latin colony in 304/3 B.C. Alba Fucens was a significant center of the middle republican period and became a place where Rome kept state prisoners, including Syphax of Numidia, Perseus of Macedonia, and Bituitus, king of the Arverni.
