Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, HORREA GALBAE (search)
HORREA GALBAE warehouses in the district known as PRAEDIA GALBANA (q.v.) between the south-west side of the Aventine and the Tiber. Here was the tomb of Ser. Sulpicius Galba, consul in 144 or 108 B.C. (CIL i². 695=vi. 31617; cf. NS 1885, 527; BC 1885, 165; Mitt. 1886, 62), and about that time, or before the end of the republic, the horrea were built and called Sulpicia (Hor. Carm. iv. 12. 18) or Galbae (Porphyr. ad loc.; Chron. p. 146; CIL vi. 9801, 33743; xiv. 20; cf. Galbeses, vi. 30901; Galbienses, vi. 710=30817; Not. Reg. XIII: Galbes, 33886; IG xiv. 956 A. 29: e)pi\ tw=| *ga/lbh| ). Other forms of the name are horrea Galbana (Not. dign. occ. iv. 15 Seeck; CIL vi. 338=30740) and Galbiana (vi. 236, 30855, 33906). They were enlarged or restored by the Emperor Galba and therefore, in later times, their erection seems to have been ascribed to him (Chron. 146: (Galba) domum suum deposuit et horrea Galbae instituit (cf.

Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, SEP. GALBAE (search)
SEP. GALBAE the tomb of Ser. Sulpicius Galba, consul in 144 or, more probably, 108 B.C., in the district belonging to the family between the south-west side of the Aventine and the Tiber, where the HORREA GALBAE (q.v.) were afterwards built. The tomb, a simple rectangular structure of tufa with a cornice of peperino, was found in 1885 in the Via Giovanni Branca, just north of the later buildings of the horrea and perhaps enclosed within them, on the south side of an ancient road (BC 1885, 165-166; NS 1885, 527; Mitt. 1886, 62, 71 HJ 175). It is now in the Museo Municipale (Antiquario) on the Caelian; see CIL i². 695 =vi. 31617.
