Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, AEMILIANA (search)
AEMILIANA a district outside the Servian wall in the southern part of the campus Martius, but whether near the Tiber, or near the via Flaminia just north of the porta Fontinalis, cannot be determined (Varro, RR iii. 2. 6; Tac. Ann. xv. 40; CIL xv. 7150; cf. Cic. de rep. i. 9; HJ 490). It was ravaged by a great fire on 21st Oct., 38 A.D. (Suet. Claud. 18; BC 1916, 220; 1918, 247; AJA 1908, 42; ILS 9427; BPW 1920, 310).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ANIO NOVUS (search)
ANIO NOVUS * an aqueduct, which, like the aqua Claudia, was begun by Caligula in 38 A.D. (Suet. Cal. 21) and completed in 52 A.D. by Claudius, who dedicated them both on 1st August. The cost of the two was 350,000,000 sesterces, or £3,500,000 sterling (Plin. NH xxxvi. 122; Frontinus, de aquis, i. 4, 13, 15, 18-2 ; ii. 68, 72, 73, 86, 90, 91, 93, 104, 15 ; Suet. Claud. 20; CIL vi. 1256; ix. 4051). Originally the water was taken from the river Anio at the forty-second mile of the via Sublacensis; but, as the water was apt to be turbid, Trajan made use of the two uppermost of the three lakes formed by Nero for the adornment of his villa at Subiaco-the Simbruina stagna of Tac. Ann. xiv. 22 (NS 1883, 19; 1884, 425; Giovannoni, Monas teri di Subiaco i. 273 sqq.), thus lengthening the aqueduct to 58 miles 700 paces. The length of 62 miles given to the original aqueduct in the inscription of Claudius on the PORTA MAIOR (q.v.) must be an error for 52; for an unsuccessful attempt to explai
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, AQUA CLAUDIA (search)
AQUA CLAUDIA * an aqueduct which (like the ANIO Novus, q.v.) was begun by Caligula in 38 A.D. (Suet. Cal. 21), and completed by Claudius in 52(unless Tac. Ann. xi. 13 indicates its completion in 47; see Furneaux in loc.), who dedicated it on 1st August. After being in use for only ten years, the supply failed, and was interrupted for nine years, until Vespasian restored it in 71; and ten years later Titus had to repair it once more, aquas Curtiam et Caeruleam ... cum a capite aquarum a solo vetustate (!) dilapsae essent nova forma reducendas sua impensa curavit. On 3rd July, 88, a tunnel under the mons Aeflanus, near Tibur, was completed. We have no records of other restorations, except from the study of the remains themselves, which show that a good deal of repairing was done in the second and third centuries (Plin. NH xxxvi. 122; Frontinus, de aquis i. 4, 13-15, 18-20, iii. 69, 72, 76, 86, 87, 89, 91, 104, 105; Suet. Claud. 20; Procop. BG ii. 3 (cf. PBS iv. 72, 73); Not. app.;

PROVIDENTIA AUGUSTA, ARA an altar of the goddess who was the incarnation of the imperial care over the Roman empire, mentioned in the acta Arvalium of 38 A.D. (Henzen, Act. Arv. xlv. 74; CIL vi. 2028 d 15) and 39 (vi. 32346) and 43-48 (Henzen Ivi.; CIL vi. 2033, 5); and on coins of the emperors from Nero to Vitellius (Cohen i. 296, No. 253; 329, No. 162; 361, No. 73; 397, No. 398-400; 444, No. 173-180; 508, No. 404- 406; Rosch. iii. 3187).
