The entry — just one — on p586 of

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

Zater(. . .nses):1 the fragmentary reading on one portion (CIL VI.31901) of the edict of Tarracius Bassus, praefectus urbi in the latter part of the fourth century, which probably is the name of those inhabiting a street in Rome. There is no indication of its location (BC 1891, 349).

The Authors' Note:

1 So Hülsen, Nomenclator; but BC cit. gives zatem, and CIL cit. zatei. Hülsen now suggests as a possibility that there may be some connection with the municipium of Zattara in Numidia proconsularis (CIL VIII p511).
