gardens on the Esquiline, known only from the inscriptions (CIL vi. 29771) on two cippi: cippi hi finiunt hortos Calyclan(os) et Taurianos. These cippi were found in situ in 1873-4, just outside the line of the Servian agger, a little north of the Via Principe Amedeo (BC 1874, 57; 1875, 153; HJ 368), and the horti Calyclani may have extended from this point eastward towards the porta Tiburtina. There is no explanation known of the name.
