ves of the pontifices were probably kept
here, for the tablets from which the annales maximi were edited, were
hung on the outer wall of the building (Cic. de leg. i. 2. 6 ; Gell. ii. 28. 6;
Dionys. i. 76. 3), and it was the place of assembly of the college of pontiffs
(Plin. Ep. iv. II. 6; Cic. ad Att. x. 3 a, I; WR 503), and at times of the
Fratres Arvales (CIL vi. 2023. 9). ATRIUM REGIUM (q.v.) is referred to
the regia by Jord. i. 2. 380, and Toeb. 3.
The regia was burned and restored in 148 B.C. (Obseq. 19; Liv. epit.
Oxyrh. 127-129; Gilb. iii. 407 (for a possible burning by the Gauls in
390 B.C., see Mem. Am. Acad. ii. 59-60)); and again in 36 B.C., when
the restoration was carried out by Cn. Domitius Calvinus who created a
building, small but of unusual beauty (Cass. Dio xlviii. 42; cf. Plin. NH
xxxiv. 48; CIL vi. 1301 ; EE iii. 266). The evidence of the ruins shows
that the statement of Tacitus (Ann. xv. 41) that the regia was destroyed
in the fire of Nero is greatly exaggerated
