Wikipedia, Aug. 9, 2010 (Teramo; city and comune in the central Italian region of Abruzzo, the capital of the province of Teramo; Interamna was the name of several cities in different parts of Italy; its etymology indicates their position at the confluence of two streams; name referred to the two rivers Vezzola and Tordino, between which it lies; the name is corrupted in extant manuscripts of the Liber Coloniarum into Teramne, whence its modern form of Teramo; in the Middle Ages it appears to have been known also by the name of Aprutium [no publs in LC database]; Teramo has very ancient origins; 290 BC: city takes its latin name of Interamnia Preatuttorium (City of the Preaetutii between two rivers)
