Ager Solonius
(99 words)

[German version]

Area (ager or campus) in  Latium between  Ostia,  Ardea and  Lanuvium (Cic. Div. 1,36; Liv. 8,12,2; Plut. Marius 35), accessible by a branch of the via Ostiensis; location of the  Pomonal (Fest. 296,15 ff.).  Marius and  Cicero owned estates in this area (Plut. loc. cit.; Cic. Att. 2,3,3). It is uncertain whether the Ager Solonius is identical with the Etruscan town of Solonium (Dion. Hal. Ant. Rom. 2,37,2).
