Important mansio on the via Traiana at its crossing with the via Herculia in the territory of the Hirpini (Itin. Anton. 112,2; alternative forms of the name: Equo tutico, Equum tuticum, Aequum tuticum, Aequo tutico, Equum magnum), modern San Eleuterio near Ariano Irpino. Aequum Tuticum (AT) was probably never raised to become a municipium , but remained dependent on Beneventum (cf. inscriptions found on two graves in AT: genius coloniae Beneventanae, CIL IX 1418; permissus decurionum coloniae Beneventanae, CIL IX 1419).
