Sorry, no etymologies found.
The gestatio is hedged with box, and with rosemary where the box is wanting; for box grows well where it is sheltered by buildings, but withers when exposed in an open situation to the wind, and especially within reach of spray from the sea.
To the inner circle of the gestatio is joined a shady walk of vines, soft and tender even to the naked feet.
Within the circuit of the gestatio there is also a cryptoportico, for extent comparable to public buildings, having windows on one side looking to the sea, on the other to the garden.
Beside it is a triclinium, where the noise of the sea is never heard but in a storm, and then faintly, looking out upon the garden and the _gestatio_, or place for taking the air in a carriage or litter, which encompasses it.
