tav´ẽrnz : Three Taverns (Latin Tres Tabernae , Greek transliterates treı́s tabérnai ; Cicero Ad Att . i. 13; ii. 12,13) was a station on the Appian Road at the 33milestone (301/3 English miles from Rome), according to the Itineraries of the Roman Empire ( Itin . Ant. vii; Tab. Peut .; Geogr. Rav . iv. 34), a converging point of traffic at the crossing of a road from Antium to Norba. Tripontium, 6 miles down the Appian Road in the direction of Appii Forum, was reckoned as the point where the highway entered the region of the Pontiac marshes, the most notable natural feature of this part of Italy.

Parties of the Christian brethren in Rome went out to greet the apostle Paul when news was brought that he had arrived at Puteoli, one group proceeding as far as Appii Forum, while another awaited his coming at Three Taverns (Acts 28:15 ).
