p203 Euripus: known only from one inscription (NS 1908, 327), and of uncertain location, but apparently near the Tiber.

Euripus in Circo Maximo (q.v.): a water channel, three metres wide, that Caesar built around the arena of the circus Maximus, just inside the lowest tier of seats, to protect the spectators from the wild beasts. It was filled in by Nero to provide more space for seats. The name was taken p204from the channel between Euboea and the mainland at Chalcis (Suet. Caes. 39; Plin. NH VIII.21; RE VI.1284; cf. p115).

Euripus Thermarum Agrippae (q.v.): a water channel through which water from the aqua Virgo appears to have flowed into the Stagnum (q.v.) of the thermae (Ovid. ex Ponto I.8.38; Sen. Ep. 83.5; Frontin. de aq. II.84; Strabo XIII.1.19 (590)).
