Todi
The most widespread legend on the origins of Todi has it that it was founded, perhaps in 2707 BC, by the ancient Veii-Umbrian tribe. Tradition has it that the first furrow of the city was traced in the place indicated to men by an eagle, in the current district that extends behind the cathedral. The name Tuder is probably derived from the Etruscan term Tuter-e, which indicated the boundary stone. In fact, Todi is located right along what for centuries will be the border between Etruria and Umbria, the Tiber. Hence its strong Etruscan characteristics, despite being a city belonging to the Umbrian population.
