London: Oxford University Press, 1929.

Aesculetum: a grove of oaks in the campus Martius (Varro, LL V.152), in which the assembly met in 287 B.C. to pass the Hortensian laws (Plin. NH XVI.37). If the Vicus Aesc(u)leti (q.v.) took its name from the grove, it must have been a little north of the modern ponte Garibaldi (HJ 521‑522).
