The name of a couch used for reclining upon at meals, and used at the time of the Empire in place of the triclinium (q. v.). It seems to have held any number of guests, and to have been lower and more luxurious than the triclinium. The spreads and pillows were called accubitalia (Trebell. Claud. 14).
