Cornus, Sardinia

Cornus was an ancient Punic-Roman town of Sardinia near Cuglieri[1]and the location, during the revolt of Hampsicora, of a battle between a Sardinian army and the Roman Republic. The Carthaginians were also involved fighting against the Romans. The town is now unoccupied and is an archaeological site with a large well temple[2] complex still visible.
