Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, FORUM ESQUILINUM (search)
FORUM ESQUILINUM an open area on the Esquiline, known from three inscriptions (C1L vi. 2223, 9179, 9180), one of which was found near the arch of Gallienus. This forum may perhaps be identified with that mentioned in two other inscriptions (CIL vi. 1662, 31888) which record its restoration by Fl. Eurycles Epitynchianus, praef. urbi in 450 A.D. It is probably referred to in Appian (BC i. 58), where the emended text readsperi\ th\n *ai)sku/leion a)gora/n. This was the scene of the conflict between Sulla and Marius in 88 B.C., and the description indicates a rather large area inside the Servian wall. ''he forum was therefore probably inside the porta Esquilina, on the north-east part of the Oppius, near the church of S. Martino ai Monti (HJ 317; DE iii. 203; RE vi. 684; cf. BC 1914, 133).

Sebastiano stands was strengthened by a mediaeval fortification wall of uncertain date, which was, if not built, at least used, by the Frangipani, who occupied the whole Velia and may have built the tower (ibid. 1909, 527-539; HJ 15-17; ZA 167, 168). By this time the lower slopes of the hill had already been occupied by various churches. S. Anastasia, at the western angle near the Lupercal, probably goes back to the middle of the fourth century. It was erected in imitation of the Holy Place in Bethlehem, and was decorated with paintings by Damasus (Inscr. Chr. ii. i. p. 150) and was the first of the titular churches, ranking only after the Lateran and S. Maria Maggiore (Mel. 1887, 387-413; Grisar, Anal. Rom. i. 595 sqq.; HCh 172-173). Under the church are important remains of six different periods from republican opus quadratum down to repairs of the time of Theodoric (HJ 134; ZA 269-274). They have nothing to do with t
