German abbreviation question

I've come across the abbreviation a.O. in a German article and I think it must mean the same thing as a.a.O, 'am angeführten Orte,' which is essentially ad loc.

Does anyone know for certain? Reference works have been absolutely no help.

I am quite certain that it means 'am Ort(e)', but can find no books where it is stated. Sorry for my English

Hi, I'm just new in studying German. I checked "a.a.O." in my "Woerterbuch" and it says

a.a.O stands for am angegebenen od angefuehrten Ort which means loc. cit.

Tchuess!
