Aufinum, long thought to have been located at modern Ofena, which reflects the ancient name, has been shown by recent excavations to have been located some 5km further south, near modern Capestrano. Aufinum was an ancient center of the Abruzzo. Pliny lists the Aufinates Cismontani among the communities of the Vestini.
