TIBER RIVER (TEVERE)
   The major, 405-kilometer-long river that rises on Monte Fumaiolo in the northern part of the central Apennines and runs through central Italy, draining a catchment of some 17,169 square kilometers, providing the southern and eastern border to Etruria. This river provided an important navigation route into the heart of Etruria. In the course of its flow, it changed from a more seasonal river in its upper reaches to the perennial and substantial flow once joined by tributaries such as the Aniene and Nera.
