a district on the right bank of the Tiber, so called because of the myrtle ('mare's tail') which grew there (Fest. 58). A campus Codetanus is mentioned in Reg. in Region XIV, which is probably the same as the Codeta, but it cannot be located more definitely. It is possible that a fragmentary inscription from a terminal cippus (CIL vi. 30422, 3) may refer to this district (HJ 624-625, 652). See NAUMACHIA AUGUSTI.
