CEROLIENSIS

CERONIENSIS

two variants of the same word, found only in a corrupt passage in Varro (LL v. 47). The adjective form used here with locus points to a substantive Cerolia or Cerniae, which may also have been in use. This was the name of the valley between the Caelian hill and the Carinae, partly occupied afterwards by the Colosseum (HJ 221; Wissowa, Ges. Abh. 245; Jord. ii. 245-246).
