Trigarium: an open space where horses were exercised, originally no doubt in teams of three, trigae (Philox. Gloss. CGl. Lat. II.201: trigarium τόπος ὅπου ἵπποι γυμνάζονται; Plin. NH XXVIII.238; XXIX.9; cf. XXXVII.202). It was in the north-west part of the campus Martius (Not. Reg. IX), between the stadium of Domitian and the Tiber (CIL VI.3154: Paullus Fabius Persicus . . . ripam cippis positis terminaverunt a trigario ad pontem Agrippae; ib. 8461; HJ 600; CP 1908, 70‑71; PT 138).
