Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, GYMNASIUM NERONIS (search)
GYMNASIUM NERONIS a building for gymnastic purposes, dedicated by Nero in 62 A.D. (Suet. Nero 12: dedicatisque thermis atque gymnasio senatui quoque et equiti oleum praebuit; Tac. Ann. xiv. 47: gymnasium eo anno dedicatum a Nerone praebitumque oleum equiti ac senatui Graeca facilitate), or in 60 after the establishment of the Neronia (Cass. Dio lxi. 21.

Later in 62 the gymnasium was burned and a bronze statue of Nero melted (Tac. Ann. xv. 22). Philostratus (vit. Apoll. iv. 42) says that it was one of the most wonderful buildings in the city. There are no other references to this gymnasium, but it would be natural to suppose that it was near or connected with the THERMAE (q.v.), which Nero is said to have dedicated at the same time (Suet. loc. cit.). The language of Philostratus seems to make no distinction between gumna/si
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, THERMAE NERONIANAE (search)
THERMAE NERONIANAE the second public bathing establishment in Rome, built by Nero near the Pantheon (Suet. Nero 12; Aur. Vict. Ep. 5; Eutrop. vii. 15). According to the Chronica (Hier. a. Abr. 2079; Cassiod. Chron. min. ii. 138) they were erected in 64 A.D., but if they are to be identified with Nero's GYMNASIUM (q.v.), which was built in 62, their construction also must be assigned to that year (HJ 590). They were among the notable monuments of the city (Mart. ii. 48. 8; iii. 25. 4; vii. 34. 5, 9; Philostr. vit. Apoll. iv. 42; Stat. Silv. i. 5. 62), and evidently became a very popular resort (for incidental references, Mart. ii. 14. 13; xii. 83. 5; CIL vi. 8676, 9797, 5 =AL 29. 5). A hypocaust was found in the courtyard of Palazzo Madama in 1871 with the brick-stamps CIL xv. 481 (123 A.D.) ; and in 1907 in another hypocaust were found ib. 164 (Severus), 364 (Hadrian), 371 b (Severus), 404 (Severus) on the site of S. Salvatore in Thermis. Pipes were found in the walls of the time o
