VIA LATA

the later name for the intramural portion of the VIA FLAMINIA, which first occurs in the Notitia as the name of Reg. VII (CIL xv. 7186, 7187 are even later). It frequently occurs in the liber Pontificalis, and is perpetuated in that of the church of S. Maria in via Lata first mentioned as one of the churches to which Leo III gave gifts in 806 (LP xcviii. c. 70; HJ 462, 463; HCh 376).
