another name for the CAMPUS MARTIUS (q.v.) according to Gellius (vii. 7. 4), who, with Pliny (NH xxxiv. 25; cf. Plut. Popl. 8), relates the story of its presentation to the people by a Vestal, Gaia Taracia or Fufetia (RE vii. 480-483). It has also been explained as that part of the campus Martius that borders the river from the island northward and identified with the CAMPUS MINOR (q.v.) of Catullus (lv. 3), and the ἄλλο πέδιον of Strabo (v. 236; HJ 475; Gilb. ii. 113; cf. the 'Ager Turax' of Cato ap. Macrob. i. 10. 16).
