Ventotene

4.6
Ventotene, in Roman times known as Pandataria or Pandateria from the Greek Pandateria or Pandatoria, is one of the Pontine Islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea, 25nmi off the coast of Gaeta right at the border between Lazio and Campania, Italy. The municipality of Ventotene, of the province of Latina (Lazio) had 708 permanent residents.GeographyThe island, the remains of an ancient volcano, is elongated, with a length of 3km and a maximum width of about 800m.The municipality includes the small ancillary island of Santo Stefano, located 2km to the east, which is the site of a massive prison, now closed. A further island, Ponza, is 40km to the west.HistoryPandataria is best known as the island to which the emperor Augustus banished his daughter Julia the Elder in 2 BC, as a reaction to her excessive adultery. Later, in 29 AD, emperor Tiberius banished Augustus' granddaughter Agrippina the Elder, who perished, probably of malnutrition, on October 18, 33 AD. After Agrippina the Elder's son Gaius, (better known as Caligula), became emperor in 37 AD, he went to Pandataria to collect her remains and reverently brought them back to Rome. Agrippina the Elder's youngest daughter, Julia Livilla, was exiled to Pandateria twice: the first time by her brother Caligula for plotting to depose him, and second time by her uncle, the emperor Claudius, at the instigation of his wife, Messalina, in 41 AD.
