Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, BIBLIOTHECA PORTICUS OCTAVIAE (search)
BIBLIOTHECA PORTICUS OCTAVIAE established by Octavia after the death of Marcellus in 23 B.C. (Plut. Marc. 30; Ov. Trist. iii. 1. 69) in the porticus Octaviae (Boyd 8-10, 33-34). It was arranged by C. Melissus, a freedman of Maecenas (Suet. de gramm. 21), and divided into two sections, one for Greek and one for Latin books (CIL vi. 2347-9,2347=4431; 2349=5192. 4431-5, 5192). Library and books were burned in 80 A.D. (Cass. Dio lxvi. 24), but the books were probably replaced in the new building (Suet. Dom. 20). For the history of the building, and its parts, see PORTICUS OCTAVIAE.

icitous ; and his article, while containing valuable information, is in most details misleading. Thus, the unit of measurement used in P. A. Bufalini's plan is not the span (=25 cm.), but the palm (=223 mm.). In front of the entrance stood two obelisks (see OBELISCI MAUSOLEI AUGUSTI); and the mausoleum was surrounded by a spacious park planted with trees and laid out with walks. The first individual whose ashes were placed in the mausoleum was Augustus' heir designate Marcellus, who died in 23 B.C. (Cass. Dio liii. 30. 5; Verg. Aen. vi. 873: quae, Tiberine, videbis funera cum tumulum praeterlabere recentem; Consol. ad Liv. 67) ; An inscription bearing his name and that of his mother has been found, and also (probably) the urn of the latter. then Agrippa in 12 B.C.

Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PONS FABRICIUS (search)
PONS FABRICIUS the stone bridge between the left bank of the river and the island, named from its builder, L. Fabricius, curator viarum in 62 B.C. (Hor. Sat. ii. 3.35-36; and Porphyr. ad loc.; Cass. Dio xxxvii. 45). The erection of this bridge is recorded in duplicate inscriptions, over the arches on each side, and a restoration in 21 B.C. after the flood of 23 B.C. (Cass. Dio liii. 33) by the consuls, Q. Lepidus and M. Lollius, in another inscription over the arch nearest the city (CIL ia. 751=vi. 1305=31594). It is probable that this stone bridge replaced an earlier one of wood. In the Middle Ages it was known both by its official name (Not. app.; Pol. Silv. 545; Mirab. II) and as the pons Iudaeorum (Graphia 10) because it was close to the Ghetto. This is the best preserved bridge in Rome, being practically the original structure. It is built of tufa and peperino faced with travertine, part of which has been replaced with brick, and has two semi-circular arches with a smaller o

rphyr. ad Hor. Epist. i. 19. 8; Jord. i. 2. 402-403). In the travertine pavement of the Augustan age in front of the column of Phocas are the matrices of the bronze letters, 30 centimetres high, of an inscription-L. Naevius L. [f. Sur]dinus pr. This is the same inscription that is found on the back of the archaistic relief of Mettius Curtius (S. Sculp. 324-326; SScR 316; Cons. 36)-L. Naevius L. f. Surdinus pr[aetor] inter civis et peregrinos (CIL vi. 1468). Naevius was triumvir monetalis in 23 B.C. (BM. Aug. 139-146; cf. p. xcv), and the inscriptions seem to indicate that he constructed a praetor's tribunal at this point in the forum, as well as repairing it (see FORUM ROMANUM, p. 234, n. I; ZA 86; DR 73, 74; RE Suppl. iv. 504; HFP 27, 28), in connection with Augustus' rebuilding of the rostra. It is possible that this was the usual place for the praetor's seat after it had been moved from the comitium (cf. another praetor's inscription, CIL vi. 1278, found here in 1817). The structur
