FORUM SUARIUM the pork market of Rome during the empire, mentioned first in two inscriptions of about 200 A.D. (CIL vi. 3728=31046, 9631), and then in documents of later date (Not. Reg. VII; Pol. Silv. 545; Cod. Theodosianus xiv. 4. 4. 4; Philostr. Her. 283 Kays. ii. 129. 12 (Teubner). ). This market was near the barracks of the cohortes urbanae in the northern part of the campus Martius, probably close to the present Propaganda, and its administration was in the hands of the prefect or of one of his officers (CIL vi. I 156a; Not. dignit. occ. iv. 10; Digest. i. 12. I. II). See HJ452; BC 1895, 48-9; DE iii. 207; and cf. CAMPUS PECUARIUS.
