. A third possibility is that the city was founded and named by the Etruscans (Etruscan civilization), in which case the name probably means Holy Wood (''luc'' "wood", ''eri'' "holy"). In 321 BC, the Roman army was deceived into thinking Lucera was under siege by the Samnite (Samnium)s. Hurrying to relieve their allies the army walked into an ambush and were defeated at the famous Battle of the Caudine Forks. The Samnites occupied Lucera but were thrown out after a revolt. The city sought Roman protection and in 320 BC was granted the status of Colonia Togata, which meant it was ruled by the Roman Senate. In order to strengthen the ties between the two cities, 2,500 Romans moved to Lucera. From then on, Lucera was known as a steadfast supporter of Rome. During the civil wars of the late Republic, Pompey set up his headquarters in Lucera, but abandoned the city when Julius Caesar approached. Lucera quickly switched its allegiance and Caesar's clemency spared it from harm. In the next civil war between Octavian and Mark Anthony (Mark Antony) the city did not escape as lightly. After the war, Octavian settled many veteran soldiers on the lands of the ruined city. This helped Lucera recover quickly and marked an era of renewed prosperity. Many of the surviving Roman landmarks hail from this Augustan period, among them the Luceran amphitheatre. With the fall of the Western Roman Empire the city of Lucera entered into a state of decline. In 663 AD, it was captured from the Lombards and destroyed by the Eastern Roman Emperor Constans II.

In this controlled environment, they could not challenge royal authority and they benefited the crown in taxes and military service. Their numbers eventually reached between 15,000 and 20,000, leading Lucera to be called ''Lucaera Saracenorum'' because it represented the last stronghold of Islamic presence in Italy. During peacetime, Muslims in Lucera were predominately farmers. They grew durum wheat

into the ''Ummah''. There was Muslim presence in these parts of Italy from 828 (Muslim conquest of Sicily (Emirate of Sicily)) to 1300 (destruction of the last Islamic settlement of Lucera in Puglia). Thereafter, until the 1970s Islam was almost entirely absent in Italy. To end this upheaval, emperor Frederick II (Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor), himself a Crusader, instigated a policy to rid Sicily of the few remaining Muslims. This cleansing was done in small part under Papal
