mentioned in Not. in Region XIII, and on a slave's collar (CIL xv. 7182: ad mappa(m) aurea(m) in Abentino). Whether this was a vicus or a building is uncertain. The name suggests the mappa with which the praetor 1 gave the signal for the beginning of the games in the circus, and this street or building was probably near or overlooking the carceres of the circus Maximus (HJ 170; BC 1887, 290-295; Mitt. 1889, 260; 1892, 295; NS 1881, 138; Merlin 321).

1 Or rather the presiding magistrate (supra. Iig).
