The Hippo

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A lozenge-shaped road in Morpork between Five Ways and Losing Street, heading for Onion Gate. Even nearby residents, without the benefit of an aerial view, tend to assume that it is named after the city's famous hippopotami. Its shape suggests it was probably a racetrack in the days of the Empire, probably called the Hippodrome, in the Ephebian fashion.

Latterly, it has been the arena for a significant and important football match, where the Unseen Academicals football team took on a representative Ankh-Morpork City Eleven, with results as related in Unseen Academicals.
