Pollusca was a town in ancient times in the territory of the Volsci in central Italy. It was located south of Rome, north of the Volscian capital Antium, and just west of Corioli.[1]

In 493 BC it was captured by a Roman army under the command of the consul Postumus Cominius Auruncus.[2] In around 488 BC it was retaken by the Volsci.[3]
