 p562  Via Collatina

Article on p562 of

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

Via Collatina: a road which led to Collatia, 11 miles from Rome, diverging from the Via Tiburtina just outside the Porta Tiburtina of the Aurelian wall. It was a road of purely local importance; and it is mentioned only in connection with the springs of the Aqua Appia and the Aqua Virgo (Frontinus, de aquis, i.5, 10). From Collatia a road ran to the via Praenestina (T. vi.139‑151; x.460‑492; PBS I.138‑149; RE III.365).
