s 7. 12) and hastened his intention of constructing his huge thermae (q.v.) on the site. A number of the openings of the domus Aurea were walled up with concrete faced with brickwork and opus reticulatum (see Ill. 20) in order to give greater stability, and the rooms were filled with rubbish execpt for the construction of the oratory of S. Felicitas there in the sixth century A.D. Here was found a very interesting calendar (RE ii. A. 1583). The vestibule was finally destroyed by Hadrian in 121 A.D., and the temple of Rome erected on its site; and after that the Golden House has no history. The regio aurea of the Middle Ages has wrongly been fixed here (RL 1909, 224-230); see AURA. Owing to the erroneous identification of the Baths of Trajan with the Baths of Titus, the ruins were called Palazzo di Tito during the Renaissance and in the seventeenth century, though De Romanis, Piale and Fea knew the truth as early as the 'twenties of last eentury.

Cecilia in Trastevere, built into a late wall and probably not in its original position. This cippus has no number, and the face where the distance to the next stone was inscribed has been broken off. The termination of Trajan is thought to be recorded in a coin of 107 (?) (Cohen, Trajan 539), which was restored in two contorniates (BC 1919, 35-38). Under Hadrian in 121 A.D. the line was again marked out, and four of his cippi have been found, but they record a restoration and not an extension: (n) CIL vi. 1233 a=31539 a; NS 1887, 18 ; BC 1887, 149, found in 1867 under No. 18 Piazza Sforza Cesarini, with the number vi on the left side and P. CCCCLXXX on the right (h in text fig. 4). (o) CIL vi. 31539 b, found in 1732 or 1735 in the foundations of a wall near S. Stefano del Cacco (i in text fig. 4).

we have a cippus of the curatores who 'ripam cippis positis terminaverunt a Trigario ad pontem Agrippae' (31545), while under Vespasian and afterwards only a single curator is named, it being doubtful whether one functioned for the whole collegium, or whether henceforth there was only a single curator (31546-8 -- 73-74 A.D.). We have other cippi under Trajan (31549-51 -- 101 and 104 A.D. -- seventeen set up by Ti. Julius Ferox curator alvei Tiberis ... ct cloacarum urbis), Hadrian (31552 -- 121 A.D.), Antoninus Pius (31553-4 -- 161 A.D.), Septimius Severus (31555-197 -- 198). None of these later groups is very large; and then there is a gap till Diocletian (31556 -- 286-305 A.D.). See PONS AELIUS for the regulation of the channel there; and for the bridges, see PONS. For the termination and embankments in general, BC 1889, 165-172; 1893, 14-26; LR 9-13; Pl. 14-17, 75-77; PT 180.
