a warehouse, named aftersome unknown Licinius and used for the storage of bricks 'ex praediis M. Aur. Antonini,' mentioned on numerous inscribed tiles of the time of Severus (CIL xv. 408), and later (Cassiod. Var. i. 25). There is no indication of its location, and portus in this sense (cf. P. CORNELI(I), PARRAE, etc.) had no necessary connection with the river (cf. the definition in Ulpian (Dig. 1. 16. 59: portus appellatus est conclusus locus quo importantur merces et inde exportantur; and CIL xv. pp. 37, 121; BC 1878, 42-43; EE ii. p. 434; Pr. Reg. 103; HJ 175).
