HORTI LUCULL(I)ANI the earliest gardens on the Pincian, laid out by L. Licinius Lucullus about 60 B.C. (Tac. Ann. xi. I). In 46 A.D. they belonged to Valerius Asiaticus and were called horti Asiatici (Cass. Dio lx. 27. 3). Messalina coveted them, forced Valerius to commit suicide, and seized the gardens, and was herself killed in them (Cass. Dio loc. cit.; Tac. Ann. xi. I, 32, 37). Thereafter they were regarded as among the richest of the imperial properties (Plut. Luc. 39). They were situated immediately above the point where the aqua Virgo emerged from its underground passage through the hill (Frontin. de aq. i. 22), close to the junction of the present Vie due Macelli and Capo le Case.

io liv. 24). In the great fire of 64 A.D. it was burned, but soon restored, probably by Nero (Tac. Ann. xv. 41; Hist. i. 43; cf. Cohen, Nero, n. 334, 335; BM. Nero ioi-io6; cf. Introd. clxxv), and later in 191 (Herod. i. 14. 4: Cass. Dio lxxii. 24), when it was restored by Julia Domna, the wife of Septimius Severus. It is mentioned in the Regionary Catalogue (Reg. VIII), and was closed by Theodosius in 394. This temple is represented on coins dating from the end of the republic (gens Cassia 60 B.C., Babelon i. 333, Nos. 8, 9; BM. Rep. i. 482. 3781-5) to the restoration by Julia Domna (see a discussion of all these coins Special attention may be called to the restoration of Republican coins by Trajan (Babelon ii. 573, 574, Nos. 11, 12); for coins of Vespasian and Domitian, see NS 1900, 168. by Dressel, Zeitschrift f.
