Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PAX, TEMPLUM (search)
PAX, TEMPLUM * (aedes, Vict.;*ei)rh/nhs new/s, Procop.; *ei)rhnai=on, Cass. Dio lxxii.;te/menos *ei)rh/nhs , other Greek writers): the temple of Peace which was begun by Vespasian after the capture of Jerusalem in 71 A.D., and dedicated in 75 (Suet. Vesp. 9; Joseph. b. Iud. vii. 5. 7 (158) ; Cass. Dio lxv. 15. ; Aur. Vict. Caes. 9. 7; Ep. 9. 8). It stood in the middle of the forum Pacis, north of the basilica Aemilia (Mart. i. 2. 8), probably at the junction of the modern Vie Alessandrina and dei Pozzi. Statius seems to ascribe the completion of this temple to Domitian (Silv. iv. 3. 17; cf. iv. I. 13), but this emperor's claim may have had little foundation (cf. Suet. Dom. 5). Within the temple, or attached closely to it, was a library, bibliotheca Pacis (Gell. v. 21. 9; xvi. 8. 2; Boyd, 16-17, 36-37). In it were placed many of the treasures brought by Vespasian from Jerusalem, as well as famous works of Greek artists (Joseph. b. Iud. vii. 5. 7; Plin. NH xii. 94; xxxiv. 84; xxxv.
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, VINEA PUBLICA (search)
VINEA PUBLICA apparently a public vineyard or park, known only from the inscription on a terminal cippus of 75 A.D. (CIL vi. 933; cf. 31208:Imp. Caesar Vespasianus Aug.... locum viniae publicae occupatum a privatis per collegium pontificum restituit). This was found outside the Aurelian wall between the 'porta Ardeatina' and the porta Appia (BC 1882, 155), and probably the vinea lay south of the Bastione del Sangallo, within the limits of Region XII, if this region ever extended beyond the line of the wall.
