the name given to that part of the via Appia, just before it is crossed by the line of the later Aurelian wall, where it ascended to the temple of MARS (q.v.). Cf. Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 97, Marti in Cl[ivo], 1st June. In process of time the grade of the road was removed or at least very much diminished (CIL vi. 1270). In 296 B.C. the clivus was paved (Liv. x. 23), and repaved in 189 B.C., when it was provided with a porticus, and afterwards known as the VIA TECTA (q.v.) (Liv. xxxviii. 28; Ov. Fast. vi. 191-2). This via Tecta is to be distinguished from the via Tecta in the campus Martius.
