Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, GENS FLAVIA, TEMPLUM (search)
GENS FLAVIA, TEMPLUM (templa Hist. Aug. Trig. Tyr. 33. 6; Claud. Goth. 3. 6): a temple erected by Domitian on the site of his father's, Vespasian's, house, in which he himself was born (Suet. Dom. I, 5; Chron. 146). This was on the Quirinal just south of the Alta Semita, the present Via Venti Settembre, ad Malum Punicum, the modern Via delle Quattro Fontane (Suet. loc. cit. ; Mart. ix. 20. I; BC 1889, 383; RhM 1894, 399-400; Mitt. 1891, 120). It was struck by lightning in 96 A.D. (Suet. Dom. 15); probably enlarged by Claudius Gothicus in 268-270 A.D. (Hist. Aug. cit.: PBS iii. 242-243, though the theory here advanced in regard to the Flavian date of the round reliefs of the ARCH OF CONSTANTINE (q.v.) is not now generally accepted), and was standing in the fourth century (Not. Reg. VI). It was probably round in shape (Mart. ix. 3. 12, 34. 2; Stat. Silv. iv. 3. 19; Altm. 88), and was intended to serve as the mausoleum of the Flavian dynasty. Domitian's ashes were placed there (Su

META SUDANS * a large fountain just south-west of the Colosseum, thought to stand at the meeting-point of five of the regions of Augustus, I, II, III, IV, X. It is said to have been built by Domitian in 96 A.D. (Chron. 146), a date which corresponds with the style of brickwork (AJA 1912, 413). In shape it resembled a goal in the circus (meta) and sudans described the appearance of the jets of water.2 That the name was not an unusual one is shown by the fact that there was one at Baiae (Sen. Ep. 56. 4). This fountain is represented on a coin of Alexander Severus (Cohen 468, 469), and it is mentioned in Not. (Reg. IV) and in Eins. (8. 15). The core still stands, conical in shape, The relief in the Galleria Lapidaria in the Vatican which represents it, is not ancient (Amelung i. 245; HJ 25, n. 55). metres high and 5 in diameter at the bottom. Around the base is a great basin, 21 metres in diameter, probably of the time of Constantine. The whole structure was originally covered with
