ABSTRACT
A volumetric reading of the Forma Urbis Marmorea is here proposed. It is based on the graphical descodification of the drawing belonging to the Arcus Neroniani in Monte Celio. These arches are shown in the fragments 4 ab, labelled as «aqvedvctivm». Thanks to an accurate building and archaeological analysis, it is understood that the approximate restitution of its architectural elevation and original orography is possible. The traditional proposal, which had understood that this aqueduct had been blinded by later attached construction, theoretically represented by means of those lines sited on the right riverside, is therefore rejected.Proponemos seguidamente una lectura volumétrica en la Forma Urbis Marmorea a partir de la descodificación gráfica del dibujo perteneciente a los Arcus Neroniani del Monte Celio; aquí mostrados en los fragmentos 4 ab bajo el nombre «aqvedvctivm». A través de un análisis constructivo y arqueológico detenido, entendemos que es posible restituir aproximativamente su alzado arquitectónico y orografía originaria. Desechamos así la tradicional propuesta que entendía este acueducto cegado por estructuras a él adosadas, teóricamente simbolizadas por las líneas que a derecha del cauce se muestran en este fragmento marmóreo.
