an artificial pond constructed by Domitian for sham naval battles paene iustarum classium (Suet. Dom. 4). It was iuxta Tiberim(Suet. loc. cit.),ἐν καινῷ χωρίῳ(Cass. Dio Ixvii. 8), and is usually located on the right bank of the Tiber without further evidence (HJ 661; DAP 2. viii. 372-373 ; BC 1914, 381-382; DuP 143). Stone from this structure was afterwards used in restoring the circus Maximus, which had suffered from fire (Suet. Dom. 5).
