* the probable name of a street in Region XIV,
due to an emendation of the uncertain reading ruralium of the Capitoline
Base (CIL vi. 975). No lares rurales are known, but an ara Larum
curialium 1 has been found on the via Portuense, with which this vicus
may be connected (NS 1907, 465; BC 1898, 42-47; PT 61).
1 With it were found two others, dedicated respectively to the Lares Semitales and
Lares Viales (the gods of the footpaths and of the main roads).
