a street in Region VIII
, known only from a fragmentary
inscription dedicated to the Lares Augusti (CIL vi. 30960
; NS 1882, 235
It has been conjectured that this was the street that led from the temple
of Vesta, past the temple of Castor, up to the north-west corner of the
Palatine, in the general line of the ramp which still exists (Th6denat
173-174), and this may be referred to in Ovid (Fast. vi. 389
: qua nova
Romano nunc via iuncta Foro est
; cf. Asc. in Scaurian. 23; Gilb.
; Jord. i. 2
. 297-298; DR 508, 509). Another theory puts
this vicus at the eastern end of the Atrium Vestae (Richter 88).
