Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ARCUS SEPTIMII SEVERI (in foro Boario) (search)
ARCUS SEPTIMII SEVERI (in foro Boario) ARCUS ARGENTARIORUM MONUMENTUM ARGENTARIORUM modern names given to an arch, which probably served as an entrance to the FORUM BOARIUM (q.v.), that stands at the south-west angle of the church of S. Giorgio in Velabro, the campanile resting partly upon one pier of the arch and concealing two of its sides. It was erected in 204 A.D. by the argentarii et negotiantes boarii huius loci qui invehent, in honour of Septimius Severus, his wife, his sons Caracalla and Geta, and Caracalla's wife Fulvia Plautilla, the daughter of Plautianus (CIL vi. 1035 ; cf. 31232). The inscription seems to have been modified thrice-after the fall of Plautianus in 205, after the murder of Plautilla in 211, and after the murder of Geta in 212. The arch is not a true arch, but a flat lintel resting on two piers, and is entirely of marble, except the base, which is of travertine. It is 6.15 metres in height and the archway is 3.30 metres wide. At the corners of the pi

th the ludi saeculares (Liv. Ep. 49; Phlegon, Macrob. 4; cf. Censorin. de die nat. 17. 8; Zos. ii. 4). The altar of the time of the empire was discovered in 1886-1887, behind the Palazzo Cesarini, 5 metres below the level of the Corso Vittorio Emanuele. Two blocks of the altar itself, which was 3.40 metres square, were found resting upon a pedestal which was approached by three steps, and a large pulvinus belonging to it was also found (Cons. 13). Behind it was a massive wall of tufa and round it a triple wall of peperino. Not far away, in a mediaeval wall, were found large portions of the marble slabs containing the inscriptions that record the celebration of the ludi saeculares by Augustus in 17 B.C., and by Severus in 204 A.D. The altar itself is no longer visible (HJ 477-478; Mitt. 1891, 127-129; Mon. L. i. 540-548; NS 1890, 285; BC 1887, 276-277; 1894, 325; 1896, 191-230; EE viii. 225-309; CIL vi. 32323-32337; PT 135-137; Cohen, Aug. 188=BM Aug. 431; Wissowa, Ges. Abh. 189-209).

IULIUS POMPEIUS RUSONIANUS, DOMUS on the south-west slope of the Quirinal, where three pipes, inscribed with his name, were found under the Teatro Nazionale (CIL xv. 7475). Pompeius was (probably) magister xvvirum sacris faciundis in 204 A.D. (Pros. ii. 207. 320; CIL vi. p. 3261).

HORTI CILONIAE FABIAE so marked on fragments (58, 80, 81) of the Marble Plan. Cilonia Fabia was the wife of Fabius Cilo, consul in 204 A.D., to whom the DOMUS CILONIS (q.v.), on the Aventine near S. Balbina, belonged. The horti were probably adjacent to the domus (HJ 188).

ch is never brought into connection with the foundation of Rome, may be a good deal later than the first settlement on the Palatine. He further believes that the combination of mundus and Roma quadrata was repeated in the forum in the lapis niger, which was not merely an altar of the gods of the underworld, but a record of the place on which the city was founded; and he thus explains Plutarch's statement that it was situated in the Comitium, and localises here (and not on the Palatine) the distribution of suffimenta ad Romam quadratam in 204 A.D. The identification or juxtaposition of the mundus and Roma quadrata, and the placing of the latter here, will not square with any of the possible theories in regard to the site of the temple of Apollo (Fest. 258), and it may be a late antiquarian invention. For an attempt to parallel with the Palatine mundus certain underground tholoi (at Piperno, Circeii, etc.), see AJA 1914, 302-320. See JRS 1912, 25-33; 1914, 225, 226; DAP 2. xi. 192-194.

35-239). As we have seen, the site of the AREA PALATINA (q.v.) has been generally connected with that of Roma quadrata (2); but inasmuch as the latter is stated by Festus to be ante templum Apollinis, it is difficult to find a place for it if we accept (as on other grounds we are probably right in doing) the theory of Pinza and Richmond as to the latter. Richmond's attempt to locate the area in front of the temple, and Lugli's placing of it to one side (ZA 175-176) do not seem successful. It may indeed be better to accept Reid's and Leopold's idea ' that the name Roma quadrata, as restricted to the mundus, is a purely antiquarian invention' (YW 1914, 12-13) founded only on Plutarch. During the ludi saeculares of 204 A.D. a tribunal was erected 'ad Romam quadratam' for the distribution of suffimenta (incense); see CIL vi. 32327. As another was erected in area Apollinis, it is probable that Roma quadrata was at a little distance from it (HJ 43). See the references on ROMA QUADRATA (1).

n its construction, can only belong to the period between February 211 and February 212. A quarry mark with the consular date 206 A.D. upon a mass of Greek statuary marble (Ann. d. Inst. 1870, p. 193, No. 279) has nothing to do with the date of the commencement of the thermae. A lead pipe found here (CIL xv. 7381) bears the names of Q. Aiacius Modestus and Q. Aiacius Censorinus, of whom the former is probably identical with one of the quindecimviri sacris faciundis of the ludi saeculares of 204 A.D. (CIL vi. 32327-32329, 32332; cf. p. 3261), who was legatus of upper Germany between 209 and 211 A.D. CIL xiii. 7417 (in the notes the date is wrongly given as 209-214), 7441. Elagabalus (Hist. Aug. Heliog. 17. 8) is said to have added porticoes which were finished by Alexander Severus (cf. id. Alex. 25. 6); but the truth of the statement is doubtful (SHA 1916. 7. A, 7-8), though it has generally been taken to refer to the peribolus. Hulsen, who had already pointed out that not a single br

Alexander (*)Ale/candros), ST., HIEROSOLYMITANUS, a disciple, first, of Pantaenus, then of St. Clement, at Alexandria, where he became acquainted with Origen, (Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 6.14,) was bishop of Flaviopolis, (Tillemont, Hist. Eccl. 3.415,) in Cappadocia. (S. Hier. Vir. Ill. § 62.) In the persecution under Severus he was thrown into prison, (circ. A. D. 204, Euseb. 6.11,) where he remained till Asclepiades succeeded Serapion at Antioch, A. D. 211, the beginning of Caracalla's reign. (See [a] the Epistle St. Alexander sent to the Antiochenes by St. Clement of Alexandria, Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 6.11.) Eusebius relates (l.c.), that by Divine revelation he became coadjutor bishop to Narcissus, bishop of Aelia, i. e. Jerusalem, A. D. 212. (See Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 6.8; Chronic. ad A. D. 228, and Alexander's [b] Epistle to the Antinoites ap. Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 6.11.) During his episcopate of nearly forty years (for he continued bishop on the death of St. Narcissus), he collected a valuable

nsisted of four books at least. (Dig. 45. tit. 1. s. 101.) Other works were, De Ritu Nuptiarunm, De Differentia Dotis, and the single treatises De Legatis et Fideicommissis, and De Testamentis, which are mentioned in the Florentine Index. The Florentine Index does not mention the Libi tad Quintlum MIcium, though there are two excerpts from this work in the Digest, from the fourteenth and thirty-first books respectively. (Dig. 41. tit. 1. s. 53, 54.) A rescript of the emperors Septimius Severus and Antoninus Caracalla, A. D. 204 (Cod. 4. tit. 2. s. 1), can hardly have been directed to this Modestinus, who lived to the time of Gordian; for it is dated thirty-five years before the time of Gordian, and, besides this, the demand of Modestinus is characterised as neither equitable nor usual.
