d apparatus for the public games in the amphitheatre were stored (cf. Fest. 52: instrumentum scenarium; Plaut. Capt. 56). Its site is indicated by the discovery of numerous inscriptions on the south side of the via Labicana, between the Colosseum and S. Clemente, in the immediate neighbourhood of the ludus Magnus and ludus Matutinus (CIL iii. 348, vi. 297, 646, 776 (cf. 30829), 8950, 10083-10087). These inscriptions show that this choragium was administered by imperial freedmen and slaves, and summum has therefore been interpreted as meaning imperial, in distinction from other choragia that belonged to aerarium (Hirschfeld, VG2 293-6; contra Mommsen, Staatsrecht, ii. 1070, n. 2). It may also mean the principal storehouse of the kind (DS i. 1117). The building was probably erected before the time of Hadrian, and the inscriptions belong to the second century (Marquardt, Staatsverwaltung, iii. 547; HJ 302; RE iii. 2405; DE ii. 219-220). It gave its name to a vicus summi Choragi (FUR 7).
