an open area on the Esquiline, known from three inscriptions (C1L vi. 2223, 9179, 9180), one of which was found near the arch of Gallienus. This forum may perhaps be identified with that mentioned in two other inscriptions (CIL vi. 1662, 31888) which record its restoration by Fl. Eurycles Epitynchianus, praef. urbi in 450 A.D. It is probably referred to in Appian (BC i. 58), where the emended text readsπερὶ τὴν Αἰσκύλειον ἀγοράν. This was the scene of the conflict between Sulla and Marius in 88 B.C., and the description indicates a rather large area inside the Servian wall. ''he forum was therefore probably inside the porta Esquilina, on the north-east part of the Oppius, near the church of S. Martino ai Monti (HJ 317; DE iii. 203; RE vi. 684; cf. BC 1914, 133).
