the name inscribed on the attic of the triple arch that is represented as standing on the east side of the Colosseum on the Haterii relief. This arch is decorated with Egyptian symbols, and a figure of Isis stands in the central archway. It would be natural to locate this arch close to the Colosseum, but the inscription indicates clearly that it was named from its proximity to the temple of Isis (q.v.). It probably spanned the via Labicana near the temple (Helbig, Fuhrer 3, No. 1193; Ann. d. Inst. 1849, 363-410; Mon. d. Inst. v. 7; Spano in Mem. Accad. di Napoli, xxiv. 1906, 227 sqq).
