Platanonis: a name that occurs but once (Not. Cur.) to designate a locality on the Aventine in Region XIII. Platanon means a grove of plane trees and with this genitive vicus is perhaps to be understood. This cannot be the platanon mentioned by Martial (iii.19.2) which was in the campus Martius near the Hecatostylon (cf. Pr. Reg. 203). There was probably yet another on the Esquiline, from which the church of S. Eustachio was called 'in platana' in the tenth and eleventh centuries (HCh 251).
