Millipede identification

I photographed what I think is a millipede in Herculaneum Italy.  Can anyone identify it for me please?  It was about 50mm long.

    I wonder if it's either Cylindroiulus londinensis or Tachypodoiulus niger? I think they're quite hard to tell apart - it's all down to the telson, or rear end! The apparently rounded end of your specimen suggests Cylindroiulus.
