the irregular continuation of the Subura, where it
ascended between the Oppius and Cispius to the porta Esquilina (Mart.
v. 22. 5; cf. x. 19. 5). The remains of ancient pavement show that it
followed in general the line of the Vie di S. Lucia in Selci, di S. Martino,
and di S. Vito. A street which ran northward to join it from the west
side of the thermae of Trajan was found in 1922 (NS 1922, 219).1
1 It is described as running north and south (i.e. parallel to the west side of the thermae)
for over 50 metres, but the thermae face north-east.
