The town had been founded in the 4th century BC by the Volsci, who successfully defended it against Samnite invasions, before the Roman conquest. The ancient Aquinum was a municipium in the time of Cicero, and made a colony by the Triumviri. It was crossed by the Via Latina. Aquinum is thought to be the birthplace of the poet Juvenal, and was that of the emperor Pescennius Niger. The earliest recorded Catholic Bishop of Aquino was Bishop Giovino in 593AD. Aquino's patron saint is Saint Constantius of Aquino (San Costanzo). Saint Thomas Aquinas (otherwise Thomas of Aquino) was born in 1225 in the castle of Roccasecca, 8 kilometres (5 mi) northwards.Wikipedia
