Thence, crossing the Apennines, they ex­tended their conquests to the Alps, occu­pying the whole country between the two seas, with the exception of Venetia. In this New Etruria (afterwards Gallia Cis-alpina) they formed a second confederacy of twelve principal cities, representing, and respectively colonized by, the twelve Tyrrhenian cities, s. of the Apennines. Their conquests s., which probably reached Lucania, are extended by some antiquaries to the very extremity of the Peninsula; it is tolerably clear that, at all events, Rome was a Tyrrhenian foundation.
