Legend tells that the mythical Hercules, after defeating Lestrigoni, people of the South of Lazio, dried up a swamp and built the city of Sezze. The name of this city of Lazio derives from the bristles of the Leone Nemeo with which the Hero was proud to cover himself. In honor of this superb founder the Setini (people of Sezze) erected a majestic temple and wanted the symbol of the city to be forever the white rampant lion, that Hercules killed, bearing a cornucopia in his claws full of the goods of the territory and framed by the inscription:
Setia plena bonis gerit albi signa leonis.
Sezze full of goods carries the insignia of the white lion.
