CORNETA

a place between the Sacra via and the Macellum, north of the forum, where there had been a grove of cornel trees (Varro, LL v. 146, 152). According to the probable emendation of a passage in Placidus (25, Deuerl.) this site was afterwards occupied by the temple of Peace (HJ i; RE iv. 1602; contrast JP 1872, 567).
