During the Punic War (218-201) between Rome and Carthage, Atella (Aderl in Oscan) had supported Hannibal. Then Atella was recaptured by the Roman proconsul Q.

In the early phase of the Second Punic War, Atella struck a bronze coinage of four denomination; the Quadrunx type derived from contemporary Roman Quadrigatus.
