the name of a street outside the porta Capena, found only in Ovid (Fast. vi. 191-192: lux eadem Marti festa est, quem prospicit extra oppositum tectae porta Capena viae), and probably applied to the via Appia between the porta Capena and the temple of MARS (q.v.) because it was bordered by some kind of a colonnade (HJ 213; cf. above).
