De Lingua Latina

M. Terentius Varro

Itaque eo ex urbe advehebantur ratibus, cuius vestigia, quod ea qua tum advectum dicitur Velabrum, et unde escendebant ad infimam Novam Viam locus sacellum Velabrum.

Therefore they advehebantur ' were conveyed' hither by rafts; and traces of this survive, in that the way by which they were then transported is now called Velabrum ' ferry,' and the place from which they landed at the bottom of New Street is a chapel of the Velabra.
