A tempo 

A tempo - Musical Definition

A tempo - Resume normal speed.

This marking is used after a change of tempo, often a rallentando or a ritenuto, to indicate that a performer should return to the main tempo.

For example, if a piece begins allegro, but then there is a passage instructing the performers to rallentando, the marking a tempo tells the players that they should return to playing allegro.
