(1) Mentioned in the Regionary Catalogue in Region XI, and probably by Obsequens (77: mula ad d. p. peperit). It was probably the name of the open space or street at the west end of the circus Maximus, derived from the twelve carceres of the circus. (2) Possibly a popular designation of some opening in the Servian wall (Plin. NH iii. 66), but no satisfactory explanation of this passage has been given (Jord. i. I. 203 ; ii. 86-88; Mitt. 1897, 157; Mel. 1909, 132 sq.).
