according to Livy (iii. 54. 15; 63. 7), an earlier name of the district immediately to the west of the Capitoline hill, afterwards called CIRCUS FLAMINIUS (q.v.), and thickly covered with public buildings before they spread north into the campus Martius proper. It was evidently equivalent to CAMPUS FLAMINIUS (q.v.), but the derivation of the name, while probably connected with the gens Flaminia, is in dispute (HJ 484-485; Gilbert iii. 66-69).
