Codeta: a district on the right bank of the Tiber, so called because of the myrtle ('mare's tail') which grew there (Fest. 58). A campus Codetanus is mentioned in Reg. in Region XIV, which is probably the same as the Codeta, but it cannot be located more definitely. It is possible that a fragmentary inscription from a terminal cippus (CIL VI.30422, 3) may refer to this district (HJ 624‑625, 652). See Naumachia Augusti.

Codeta Minor: mentioned only once (Suet. Caes. 39) as that part of the campus Martius in which Caesar constructed a naumachia for his triumph in 46 B.C. It was perhaps just opposite the Codeta of Region XIV.
