an artificial pool of considerable size, constructed by Agrippa by the side of his THERMAE (q.v.), with which and the HORTI (q.v.) it formed one whole (Ovid, ex Ponto i. 8. 37-38; Strabo xiii. I. 19 (590)). This stagnum was fed by the aqua Virgo, which Agrippa finished in 19 B.C., and was probably connected with the Tiber by the EURIPUS (q.v.). It was almost certainly on the west side of the thermae, north of the present Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and between the Via di Monterone and the Via dei Sediari, an area afterwards partly occupied by the PORTICUS BONI EVENTUS (q.v.) of the fourth century (HJ 580; Hulsen, Thermen des Agrippa, 32-33; Gilb. iii. 293-294).
