the name given in the Scholiast on Juvenal (3. 11) and
in the Mirabilia (10) to the arch of the AQUA MARCIA
(q.v.), which crossed
the via Appia at the PORTA CAPENA
(q.v.). It also occurs as arcus Stellae
in an interpolation in the life of Stephen I (LP xcvii.) and in a spurious
bull of Paschal II, in which, however, the local names have been taken
from an authentic document of Calixtus II (Kehr, Italia Pontificia ii.
, No. 7). Here must have stood the ecclesia S. Laurentii de...
quae est iuxta arcum stillantem cum omnibus pertinentiis suis, et omnes
curtes quas habetis in regione schole Grece
(Studi e Doc. Storia a
Diritto, 1886, 108; BC 1886, 352
; Armellini 597; HCh 287; HJ
202). The possibility of extending the regio schole Grece (S. Maria in
Cosmedin) as far as the porta Capena has recently been denied, and the
arcus Stillans consequently identified with the FORNIX AUGUSTI
) ; but the evidence is insufficient (HCh 593).
