Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, CURIA IULIA (search)
ich was found in 1547, still lies not far from the niger lapis (Mitt. 1893, 281; HC 95-96; CIL vi. 1203-1205, 31261, 31262). For a glass cup commemorating the same vicennalia see BC 1882, 180-19o. Near here are also fragments of a large base for a quadriga erected in honour of Arcadius and Honorius after Stilicho's victory over Gildo in Africa in 398 A.D. (CIL vi. 1187, 31256 ; Mitt. 1895, 52-58 ; LR 261) and another inscription celebrating Stilicho's victory over Radagaisus at Pollentia in 403 A.D. (CIL vi. 31987). The church of S. Adriano was founded in the curia by Honorius I (625-638; LP lxxii. 6), who added the apse. It is called in tribus fatis from a group of the three fates which stood near the temple of Janus (Jord. i. 2. 259, 349; BCr 1912, 146; HC 24, 26; HCh 260-261). After this several bodies were buried in niches cut in the front wall, in the concrete core of the steps, and in front of them, on the pavement of the comitium. The doorway, 5.90 metres in height, probably rem
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PORTA AURELIA (2) (search)
PORTA AURELIA (2) mentioned by Procopius (BG i. 19; cf. 23, 28) as being known in his time as Porta S. Petri;th\n *au)rhli/an pu/lhn h(\n nu=n *pe/trou...a(te pou plhsi/on keime/nou, e)pw/numo/s e)sti.. It is mentioned under this name in DMH (403 A.D.) and also in Eins. I.1 ; 2.1 ; 8.1; 3.1. It is now commonly (contrast De Rossi, Inscr. Christ. ii. 38; 99. 7; 324. 6) placed at the east end of the pons Aelius, on the left bank of the river (Richter 72; HF iii); and Jord. (i. I. 378-390), who shares this view, further identifies it with the porta Cornelia, holding that the passage through the fortifications of the MAUSOLEUM HADRIANI (q.v.) was not viewed as a city gate at all; but in this he has not been generally followed. He is, however, right in pointing out that it is incorrect, as Richter and Lanciani (Mon. L. i. 447) still do, to call it Porta S. Petri in Hadrianeo (DMH) and that the two phrases should be divided. If, however, there was only one Porta S. Petri, the inscriptio
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PORTA PORTUENSIS (search)
PORTA PORTUENSIS a gate in the Aurelian wall, rebuilt by Honorius in 403 A.D. (CIL vi. 1188: ob instauratos ... muros portas atque turres; DMH). Through it ran the VIA PORTUENSIS (q.v.). It had semi-circular brick towers and two arches, and thus resembled the original form of the portae Appia, Flaminia, and Ostiensis as built by Aurelian (see the view in Nardini, Roma Antica (1666), p. 36); so that it is not easy to see in what Honorius' restorations consisted. The excellent representation in Maggi's large bird's-eye view of Rome (published in facsimile by Ehrle, Roma nel tempo di Urbano VIII, Rome, 1914) shows a vantage court at the back, as at the Porta Appia, etc. The church of S. Lorenzo de Porta, of which nothing is known, took its name from the gate (HCh 295). It was destroyed by Urban VIII, whose successor, Innocent X, completed the new gate, 453 metres nearer to the city (Jord. i. I. 37 ; T v. 7-12; LF 36; Roma iii. (1925), 317).
