In: Bullettino della Commissione Archeologica Comunale di Roma: 122, 2021
This paper is an in-depth study originating from the research presented at a conference held at the Royal Netherlands Institute of Rome in February 2017. In that occasion, the routes of the main Roman aqueducts located between Vermicino and Capannelle, were studied. In this new work, they are analyzed in the topographical context of the areas where the limariae piscinae of Aqua Marcia, Aqua Tepula, Aqua Iulia, Aqua Claudia and Anio Novus were placed in Antiquity. According to the sources of Frontinus (end of the first century AD), these were located between the sixth and seventh miles of the Via Latina. This work is also based on the studies of important researchers, such as R. Lanciani, Th. Ashby and Van Deman, as well as on the results of a number of emergency archaeological excavations carried out in the last thirty years in Capannelle, which made it possible to integrate the extant documentation.
