a fig tree, olive tree and vine, that stood in the middle of the forum, near the lacus Curtius in the time of Pliny (NH xv. 78). The fig tree is represented on the reliefs, and with the vine and olive may perhaps have grown in an open space about 4 metres square (where the STATUA MARSYAE (q.v.) also stood), between the inscription of Naevius and the reliefs, where there are no traces of pavement (RE vi. 2148; Hilsen, Forum, Nachtrag 15-19; HC 150). See ROSTRA.
