Campus Agrippae


The building activity displayed by Agrippa in the campus Martius extended across the via Lata, and the campus Agrippae, laid out by Agrippa and finished and dedicated by Augustus in 7 B.C., was the topographical center of the region. This campus, which was a beautiful park and a favorite promenade of the Romans, extended from the line of the aqua Virgo on the south at least as far as the via Claudio on the north, and from the via Lata to the slope of the Quirinal, although its boundary on the east is quite uncertain.   (Platner)
