>> I think you're right. The Aqua Marcia, Aqua Ano Vetus, Aqua Anio

>> crossings. Only the terminal portions of the aqueducts, as they
>> approached the City, or crossings of deep valleys, were on arcades -
>> but these make the tourist pictures, so people get the incorrect
>> impression that 'aqueduct' is synonymous with 'arcade'.
> This sounds to be an enough justification to don't use the aqueduct term,
> thank you Kevin
