Arpi, Argyrippa, or Argos Hippium was an ancient city of Apulia, Italy, 20 mi. W. of the sea coast, and 5 mi. N. of the modern Foggia. The legend attributes its foundation to Diomedes, and the figure of a horse, which appears on its coins, shows the importance of horse-breeding in early times in the district. Its territory extended to the sea, and Strabo says that from the extent of the city walls one could gather that it had once been one of the greatest cities of Italy. As a protection against the Samnites, Arpi became an ally of Rome. In the war with Pyrrhus, the Arpani aided Rome with a contingent of 4000 foot and 400 horse. Arpi remained faithful to Rome until Rome's defeat at the battle of Cannae, but the consul Quintus Fabius Maximus, son of the famous Roman dictator Quintus Fabius

  • Arpi war eine antike Stadt der Daunier in der süditalienischen Landschaft Apulien. Andere Namensformen sind Argyripa und Argos Hippion. Der Name lebt in einem Gehöft beim heutigen Foggia fort. Die Stadt wurde nach einer mythologischen Legende von Diomedes gegründet. In den Samnitenkriegen unterstützte sie 320 v. Chr. Rom, fiel aber im Zweiten Punischen Krieg 216 v. Chr. nach der Schlacht von Cannae von den Römern zu Hannibal ab. Obwohl mit einer starken punischen Besatzung versehen, gelang dem Konsul Quintus Fabius Maximus 213 v. Chr. die Rückeroberung der Stadt. Seit Augustus gehörte Arpi zur 2. Region Italiens (Apulia et Hirpini). Auf ein spätantikes Bistum der Stadt geht das Titularbistum Arpi der römisch-katholischen Kirche zurück. (de)

Arpi remained faithful to Rome until Rome's defeat at the battle of Cannae, but the consul Quintus Fabius Maximus, son of the famous Roman dictator Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus, captured it in 213 B.C., and it never recovered its former importance. It lay on a by-road from Luceria to Sipontum. No Roman inscriptions have, indeed, been found here, and remains of antiquity are scanty. Foggia is its medieval representative. (en)
  • Arpi (anche chiamata Argyrippa o Argos Hippium, derivante dal greco Aργύριπποι, Άργος Ίπποι) era una città della antica Apulia, di cui restano scarse vestigia e il nome della masseria Arpi, sulla destra del torrente Celone, a otto chilometri a nord-est di Foggia. La sua importanza e grandezza era dimostrata ancora al tempo di Strabone dall'ampiezza delle sue mura, per cui la città appariva, come a Canosa, una delle maggiori degli Italioti. (it)
