p419 Porta Viminalis

Article on p419 of

Samuel Ball Platner (as completed and revised by Thomas Ashby):
A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome,
London: Oxford University Press, 1929.


Porta Viminalis: a gate on the Viminal, in the middle of the Servian agger (Strabo V.234; Fest. 163, 376, 377; Frontinus, de aq. I.19). Some remains of it are still to be seen just north of the railway station. The road which issued from it appears to have been of minor importance and passed through the Aurelian wall by a postern south of the Praetorian camp (BC 1876, 168‑170; 1914, 80; PBS III.85‑86; LF 17), the so‑called Porta Chiusa (q.v.).
