CAIETA

ΚΑΙΕΤΑ

According to some accounts, the nurse of Aeneas (Virg. Aen. vii. 1; Ov. Met. xiv. 442), and, according to others, the nurse of Creusa or Ascanius. (Serv. ad Aen. 1. c.) The promontory of Caieta, as well as the port and town of this name on the western coast of Italy, were believed to have been called after her. (Klausen, Aeneas u. d. Penat. p. 1044, &c.)
