Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, AELIA ATHENAIS, DOMUS (search)

circumference. It is composed entirely of fragments of earthen jars (amphorae, dolia) in which corn, wine, and produce of various kinds had been brought to the horrea from Africa, Spain, and Gaul. Many of these jars were inscribed on the neck or handle, and a large number of these inscriptions have been recovered (CIL xv. pp. 491-659). They date from 140 to 251 A.D., but it is certain that the dumping of debris on this spot began as early as the time of Augustus, and that the hill had reached its present height by the middle of the second century. The distribution of the debris shows that the hill rose in the midst of the horrea. Under one of its sides the tomb of the RUSTICELII (q.v.) was found (HJ 177-178; Ann. d. Inst. 1878, 118-192; 1885, 232-234; CIL xv. pp. 491-492, 560-565; BC 1911, 246-260; 1915, 41-46, 279, 291; 1914, 241-250; 1915, 41-46, 279-290; Mem. Soc. Nat. Ant. France, 1915, '53; D.

ken to refer to the peribolus. Hulsen, who had already pointed out that not a single brick-stamp is to be found in the peribolus (Hulsen-Iwanoff, op. cit. 57--an observation which is confirmed by the excavations of 1912), is inclined to accept this statement: for, as is well known, the practice of stamping bricks went out of use after the reign of Caracalla until the time of Diocletian. See also p. 531, n. I. For a catalogue of the works of art which the baths contained about the middle of the third century, The restoration 'Herculem G[lycon]is' (the Hercules now at Naples, 1. 6) is almost certain (cf. p. 32). Cf. also the list in Iwanoff-Hiilsen, op. cit. infra, 72-80. cf. Nicole, Un Catalogue d'ceuvres d'art conserves a Rome a l'epoque imperiale (Geneva, 1906). Some porticoes connected with the baths (whatever is meant) were destroyed or damaged by fire, and repaired under Aurelian (Chron. 148: porticus Thermarum Antoninarum arserunt et fabricatum est). A brick-stamp of the time o
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, TRIA FATA (search)
TRIA FATA statues of the three Fates on the north side of the Rostra, close to the Curia (Procop. BG i. 25. 9). They were said to have been set up by Tarquinius Priscus, and two of them were restored in the Augustan period (Plin. NH xxxiv. 22, 29). When the name, tria Fata, first came into use is not known, but its first occurrence is in 250 A.D. (Cyprian, Epist. 21, Hartel 231), where it means that part of the forum about the curia. This usage continued and is found in several later documents (Procop. loc. cit.; S. Adriano in tribus fatis Cf. HCh xcvii., 260; SS. Cosma e Damiano and S. Martina also had the same name (ib. 242, 381). vit. Honor. 6, LPD i. 34; vit. Stephani III.
