  Battle of Lake Regillus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Battle of Lake Regillus was a legendary early Roman victory, won over either the Etruscans or the Latin League.
The location of the lake is unknown, but according to Livy it was in Tusculum, and the battle was fought against the Latins, with help from Tarquinius Superbus, the former Etruscan king of Rome.
The battle may be entirely legendary, due to the scarcity of records from this early date in Roman history.

 Lays of Ancient Rome - The Battle of the Lake Regillus

It was this Juppiter of the Capitoline who was chosen to be the divine representative of Rome's political ambition; and her confidence in the future, and the omen of her inevitable success lay in the cult-names, the cognomina, with which this Juppiter was henceforth and forever adorned, Juppiter Optimus Maximus.
It was under his banner that her battles were fought, it was to him in all time to come that returning generals gave thanks.
Tradition sets the completion of the Capitoline temple in the first year of the republic, but the idea and the actual beginning of the work belong to the later kingdom and hence to our present period, and the contemplation of it forms a fitting close to the development which we have tried to sketch.

Towards the end of the block nearest the lake, in which direction the fire seemed less developed, they climbed in through an open window and again reached the passage, hoping to find the staircase at that end still passable.
But it, too, was full of flame and smoke; so they crawled back along the passage, Cyril advising his companion to keep his mouth close to the ground, till they reached the latticed cage of the lift running down the long well in the centre of the block.
Finally they took refuge in one of the pleasure boats which were moored to the steps of the quay at the side of the garden next the lake, and, casting loose, rowed out on to the water.
