probably the intersection of the VICUS CUPRIUS (q.v.)1 and another street that ran north-east, up and across the Carinae. This compitum is mentioned twice. Near it was the Tigillum Sororium (Hemerol. Arv. ad Kal. Oct. =CIL vi. 32482), and a shop that was bought by the state for Archagathus, the first Greek physician who came to Rome, in 229 B.C. (Plin. NH xxix. 12; cf. Mommsen, Munzwesen 632).

1 Two churches, S. Maria and S. Nicholas, which lay between these streets, were called 'inter duo ' or ' inter duas ' (HCh 340, 394).
