Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, BELLONA, AEDES (search)
ee Addenda to HERCULES CUSTOS, AEDES. The senate met in this temple on various occasions (SC de Bacch. CIL i. 581 =x. 104; Cic. in Verr. v. 41; Plut. Sulla 7; Cass. Dio 1. 4), and most frequently, as the temple lay outside the pomerium, to receive victorious generals on their return to Rome, and to vote upon their claims for a triumph (Liv. xxvi. 2 ; xxviii. 9, 38; xxxi. 47; xxxiii. 22; xxxvi. 39; xxxviii. 44; xxxix. 29; xli. 6; xlii. 9, 21,28; Sall. frg. v.26; cf. BC 1908, 138). Foreign ambassadors were also received here (Liv. xxx. 21, 40; xxxiii. 24; xlii. 36). The temple is mentioned in the second and early third century (Plut. Cic. 13; Cass. Dio lxxi. 33; Hist. Aug. Sev. 22; Placidus, p. 14 Deuerl.=CGLv. 8. 22, 50. 8). Near It was a SENACULUM (q.v.) or place of assembly for the senators (Fest. 347), and in front of it stood the COLUMNA BELLICA (q.v.). Besides the literature already cited, see RE iii. 254-255; viii. 572-573; Rosch. i. 775; HJ 552- 554; JRS 1921, 32.
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, CARMINIA LIVIANA DIOTIMA, DOMUS (search)
CARMINIA LIVIANA DIOTIMA, DOMUS c(larissima) femina. Her name occurs several times on a large lead pipe of the end of the second or beginning of the third century A.D., belonging to other owners also, P. Attius Pudens (Prosop. i. 181. 1132), T. Flavius Valerianus, C. Annius Laevonicus Maturinus (?), which was found between the porta Tiburtina and the porta Labicana in making the railway (CIL xv. 7424a ; LF 24). For her genealogy, see Pros. i. 305. 365.

GEMINIA BASSA c.f. , DOMUS just inside the porta Viminalis, known only from a lead pipe of the beginning of the third century (CIL xv. 7463).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, FORUM SUARIUM (search)
FORUM SUARIUM the pork market of Rome during the empire, mentioned first in two inscriptions of about 200 A.D. (CIL vi. 3728=31046, 9631), and then in documents of later date (Not. Reg. VII; Pol. Silv. 545; Cod. Theodosianus xiv. 4. 4. 4; Philostr. Her. 283 Kays. ii. 129. 12 (Teubner). ). This market was near the barracks of the cohortes urbanae in the northern part of the campus Martius, probably close to the present Propaganda, and its administration was in the hands of the prefect or of one of his officers (CIL vi. I 156a; Not. dignit. occ. iv. 10; Digest. i. 12. I. II). See HJ452; BC 1895, 48-9; DE iii. 207; and cf. CAMPUS PECUARIUS.
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, OBELISCUS HORTORUM SALLUSTIANORUM (search)
OBELISCUS HORTORUM SALLUSTIANORUM now standing in the Piazza della Trinita dei Monti. This obelisk was brought to Rome some time after the period of Augustus (Amm. Marcell. xvii. 4. 16) and erected in the gardens of Sallust, where it was still standing in the eighth century (Eins. 2. 7; Jord. ii. 344, 649). It is 13 metres high, and on its surface is a copy made in Rome, probably about 200 A.D., of the hieroglyphics of the obelisk of Rameses II that Augustus set up in the circus Maximus (BC 1897, 216-223=Ob. Eg. 140-147). In the fifteenth century it was lying on the ground, broken into two pieces, near its base (Anon. Magl. 17, ap. Urlichs 159; LS i. 234) and remained there until the eighteenth century (LD 171, who reproduces a drawing by Carlo Fontana (Windsor 9314) dated 21st March, 1706, and lettered 'scoprimento della Guglia, etc.') Cf. also Kircher, Oedipus Aegyptiacus, iii. 256-257, and plate (dated 1654) reissued in Rom. Coll. S.J. Musaeum, Amsterdam, 1678. In 1733 Clemen
Agrippi'nus Bishop of Carthage, of venerable memory, but known for being the first to maintain the necessity of re-baptizing all heretics. (Vincent. Lirinens. Commonit. 1.9.) St. Cyprian regarded this opinion as the correction of an error (S. Augustin. De Baptismo, 2.7, vol. ix. p. 102, ed. Bened.), and St. Augustine seems to imply he defended his error in writing. (Epist. 93, c. 10.) He held the Council of 70 Bishops at Carthage about A. D. 200 (Vulg. A. D. 215, Mans. A. D. 217) on the subject of Baptism. Though he erred in a matter yet undefined by the Church, St. Augustine notices that neither he nor St. Cyprian thought of separating from the Church. (De Baptismo, 3.2, p. 109.) [A.J.C]
Anti'ochus (*)Anti/oxos), of AEGAE in Cilicia, a sophist, or as he himself pretended to be, a Cynic philosopher. He flourished about A. D. 200, during the reign of Severus and Caracalla. He belonged to a distinguished family, some members of which were afterwards raised to the consulship at Rome. He took no part in the political affairs of his native place, but with his large property, which was increased by the liberality of the emperors, he was enabled to support and relieve his fellow-citizens whenever it was needed. He used to spend his nights in the temple of Asclepius, partly on account of the dreams and the communications with the god in them, and partly on account of the conversation of other persons who likewise spent their nights there without being able to sleep. During the war of Caracalla against the Parthians he was at first of some service to the Roman army by his Cynic mode of life, but afterwards he deserted to the Parthians together with Tiridates. Antiochus was o
Basi'licus (*Basiliko/s), a rhetorician and sophist of Nicomedeia. As we know that he was one of the teachers of Apsines of Gadara, he must have lived about A. D. 200. He was the author of several rhetorical works, among which are specified one peri\ tw=n dia\ tw=n le/cewn sxhma/twn, a second peri\ r(htorikh=s paraskenh=s, a third peri\ a)skh/sews and a fourth pepi\ metapoih/sews. (Suidas, s. vv. *Basiliko\s and *)Ayi/nhs; Eudoc. p. 93.) [L.
Ca'ndidus (*Ka/ndidos), a Greek author, who lived about the time of the emperors Commodus and Severus, about A. D. 200, and wrote a work on the Hexameron, which is referred to by Eusebius. (Hist. Eccl. 5.27; comp. Hieronym. De Scriptor. Eccl. 48.) [L.
Domni'nus (*Domni=nos), 1. A Christian, who apostatized to Judaism in the persecution under Severus, about A. D. 200, and to whom Serapion, bishop of Antioch, addressed a treatise intended to recall him to the faith. (Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 6.12; comp. Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. vii. p. 166
