Hi,

does anyone know what "vulcente" means? My guess is "Volscian", referring to the ancient people of Italy defeated by the Romans.

The context is: "il saggio di Eduard Gerhard sulle scoperte vulcenti di Luciano Bonaparte ..."

Grazie,
Interpres

After a bit more research I think my idea is right but that the English spelling is really "Vulcian". But can anyone confirm that "Vulcian" is "vulcente"?

Thanks, Interpres

    It means "pertaining to Vulci". Vulci is an Etruscan city.

    I hope this helps! :)

    EDITED TO ADD: "Volsci" "Tusci/Etrusci"
