Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, LATERANI, DOMUS (search)
LATERANI, DOMUS * under the church of S. John Lateran, to which it gave its name. HCh 272; cf. also S. Pancratius in Laterano, frequently mentioned in the eighth and ninth centuries (HCh 409). The house was presented to T. Sextius Lateranus, consul in 197 A.D., by his friend, the Emperor Septimius Severus (Vict. Epit. 20; CIL xv. 7536). It is probable, if not certain, that this was the egregiae Lateranorum aedes (Juv. x. 17) that belonged to Plautius Lateranus, who was executed by Nero for complicity in the conspiracy of Piso (see L. LUSIUS PETELLINUS, DOMUS), and that it was simply restored to the Laterani by Severus. The greater part of the remains that have been found belong to this period, including two rooms with mosaic pavement found under the pavement of the baptistery in 1924. Although ordinarily called domus Laterana (Hist. Aug. M. Ant. I), it must have fallen again into imperial hands, for Constantine presented it to Pope Miltiades in 313 A.D., after which time it continu

Anuli'nus, P. Cornelius one of the generals of Severus, gained a battle over Niger at Issus, A. D. 194. He afterwards commanded one of the divisions of the army which Severus sent against Adiabene, A. D. 197. He was consul in A. D. 199. (D. C. 74.7, 75.3.)
Diony'sius 12. Of BYZANTIUM, appears to have lived before the time of the emperor Severus, that is, before A. D. 197. Works Dionysius is mentioned by Stephanus of Byzantium (s. v. *Xruso/polis and Suidas as the author of an a)na/plous *Bospo/rou. Suidas further calls him an epic poet, and states that he also wrote on the species of poetry called *Drh=noi. Periegesis Some writers have believed that our Dionysius of Byzantium is the same as the one whose Periegesis is still extant, but this opinion is without foundation, and based only on the opinion of Suidas. a)na/plous *Bospo/rou The a)na/plous *Bospo/rou seems to have existed complete down to the 16th century, for P. Gyllius in his work on the Thracian Bosporus gave a considerable portion of it in a Latin translation. G. J. Vossius obtained a copy of a fragment of it, which his son Isaac had taken at Florence, and that fragment, which is now the only part of the Anaplus known to us. Editions The fragment obtained by Vos
age for celebrating with all pomp certain public games. This tract is a solemn denunciation, addressed to all true believers, against taking any part in such exhibitions, which were invented by devils, and were calculated to awaken and cherish feelings and passions altogether inconsistent with the Christian profession. Neander supposes that this and the following piece were called forth by the rejoicings at the termination of the civil war by the death of Niger (A. D. 194) and of Albinus (A. D. 197). Others believe that the preparations referred to were for the Secular Games, which commemorated the completion of the eighth great century of Rome (A. D. 204). This diversity of opinion upon such a point is in itself sufficient to prove that the historical allusions are of a vague and general character. 25. De Idololatria.
