Italian term or phrase: anapesto in seconda sede
This is from a thesis in Greek phylology. I have problems finding the correct translation for the Italian 'sede'. Can you help? Thank you!

Here is the context:
La presenza di un anapesto (in questo caso, in seconda, terza o quarta sede) è più che ammissibile in un trimetro giambico di Sofocle.

anapest at second place
Explanation:
This poem shows examples of anapests and iambs combinations. And at some places iambs are substituted by anapests. The poem is written in anapestic trimeter in each line, which means there are three anapests in each line.
