mentioned only in the Regionary Catalogue in Region IX in just this form, but doubtless referred to as ad Nixas in the calendar of Philocalus (a. 354 ad id. Oct.; CIL i 2. p. 332), and as de Ciconiis on an inscription (CIL vi. 1785=31931). It designated a certain district, probably an open square, on the bank of the Tiber, in which there was a statue, or perhaps a relief on one of the surrounding buildings, of two or more storks with crossed bills. It was probably a little south of the Mausoleum Augusti, near the present Piazza Nicosia, and seems to have been a landing-place for wine (CP 1908, 70-71).
