a name found on an inscription (CIL vi. 31893) of c. 370 A.D., applied to those who dwelt in the Decennium or Decenniae. This was the swampy depression south-west of the Lateran, outside the Aurelian wall, through which the Marrana 1 flows. Decennium is a conjectural form; Decenniae appears in mediaeval documents (cf. Jord. ii. 318; HJ 220; BC 1891, 343, 355-6; RE iv. 2267).

1 This stream, which is fed by the springs of the AQUA IULIA (q.v.), was brought to Rome by Calixtus II in 1122 (LA 325-327); see also CIRCUS MAXIMUS.
