Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, T. SEXTIUS AFRICANUS, DOMUS (search)
T. SEXTIUS AFRICANUS, DOMUS thought to have been at the corner of the Via del Babuino and the Via di Gesi e Maria, where a private house was discovered in making the foundations of the English Church of All Saints (NS 1880, 466; BC 1881, 29; LF I; CIL vi. 31684; Cons. 288). The inscription is, however, fragmentary, and its provenance not absolutely certain (HJ 451). T. Sextius Africanus was consul suffectus in 59 A.D. (Pros. iii. 236, 464).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, MACELLUM MAGNUM (search)
MACELLUM MAGNUM the market house on the Caelian (Not. Reg. II; CIL vi. 1648, 9183) which Nero built and dedicated in 59 A.D. (Cass. Dio lxii. 18), perhaps on the site of the present church of S. Stefano Rotondo. It is represented on coins of the period (Cohen, Nero 126-130; BM. Nero 191-197, 335-337) as a circular building of two stories, with a central tholos or domed structure surrounded by colonnades. This is generally thought to have been destroyed at some later date and rebuilt at the end of the fourth century for public use, perhaps again as a market. Lugli (ZA 147) follows Profumo's idea (Incendio Neroniano, 673-694) that the original circular building was the famous coenatio rotunda of the DOMUS AUREA (q.v.); but this has nothing to recommend it. Rivoira (RA 79-81) was unable to see anything above ground that showed the remotest indication of work of the time of Nero. It was transformed into the church of S. Stefano by Pope Simplicius (468-482); and restored with various

placed by Hadrian in accordance with his well-known principle in such cases. The restoration ascribed to Antoninus Pius (Hist. Aug. Pius 8:instauratum ... templum Agrippae) may refer only to the completion of Hadrian's building. Finally, a restoration by Severus and Caracalla in 202 A.D. is recorded in the lower inscription on the architrave (CIL vi. 896). What it amounted to is quite uncertain, for no traces of their work can be recognised with any certainty (JRS 1925, 125). In January, 59 A.D., the Arval Brethren met in the Pantheon (CIL vi. 2041); Hadrian held court in his restored edifice (Cass. Dio lxix. 7. I); Ammianus (xvi. 10. 14: Pantheum velut regionem teretem speciosa celsitudine fornicatam) speaks of it as one of the wonders of Rome; and it is mentioned in Reg. (Not. Reg. IX). For a library situated in or near the Pantheon, see THERMAE AGRIPPAE (p. 519); THERMAE NERONIANAE. The building faces due north; it consists of a huge rotunda preceded by a pronaos. The former is
