p408 Porta Flumentana

Article on p408 of

London: Oxford University Press, 1929.

Porta Flumentana: a gate in the Servian wall, near the Tiber (Fest. 89), from which fact the name is derived. It was without doubt in that part of the wall which connected the Capitoline with the river, as the district known as extra portam Flumentanam was evidently in the southern part of the campus Martius, and was occupied, at least in part, by the houses of the wealthy (Liv. VI.20; xxxv.9 and 21; Cic. ad Att. 7.3.9;º Varro, RR III.2; CIL VI.9208; Jord. I.1.240; Gilb. II.299‑301; BC 1914, 79; cf. Mél. 1909, 140‑141).
