Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, CASTRA EQUITUM SINGULARIUM (search)
CASTRA EQUITUM SINGULARIUM the barracks of the equites singulares, a select corps of cavalry organised about the end of the first century as a bodyguard for the emperor. Some remains of these barracks were found in 1885 in the Via Tasso, just north-west of the Scala Santa, consisting principally of the wall of a large rectangular court, in which were niches and in front of the niches inscribed pedestals (BC 1885, 137; Ann. d. Inst. 1885, 235 ; PT 131). These inscriptions and others found near by (CIL vi. 31138-31187) mention castra priora and castra nova or nova Severiana, and one MS. of the Notitia reads castra eq. sing. 11. There were, therefore, two barracks, the later apparently erected by Severus, but they were probably adjacent structures, or even parts of the same building (HJ 246; DE ii. 2148). Other fragments of walls that probably belong to the castra have been found in front of the Lateran (BC 1913, 72-74).

er the epithet Moneta and decided to establish the mint in her temple. None of the explanations yet suggested is satisfactory, and even the usual derivation of the word Moneta from moneo is open to doubt (Walde, Etym. Worterb. 2nd ed. 493). The mint was in the temple during the last centuries of the republic, perhaps established there in 269 when silver coinagewas introduced into Rome (Liv. vi. 20. 13; Cic. ad Att. viii. 7. 3), and was called Moneta or ad Monetam. It seems to have been removed at the end of the first century (see Moneta), and nothing further is heard of the temple (Jord. i. 2. 108-111; WR 190; Rosch. ii. 592-594, 603, 612; RE x. 1118). Not a trace of it has been found in the works for the erection of the monument to Victor Emmanuel, and it may have occupied the site of the transepts of the church of S. Maria in Aracoeli (Hilsen, Bilder aus der Geschichte des Kapitols (Rome, 1899), 31). For an antefix from an earlier temple on the site see Cons. 323, No. 103 and reff.
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, TABULARIUM (search)
copied by Signorili and Poggio (CIL i. 737=vi. 1314): Q . Lutatius . Q . f . Q . n . Catulus . cos. substructionem et tabularium . de . s . s . faciundum . coeravit . eidemque . probavit; and the other still partially preserved in one of the rooms of the building (CIL i². 736 =vi. 1133=31597): Q . Lu]tatius . Q . f . Q . n . C[atulus . cos . de . s]en . sent . faciundu[m . coeravit.] eidemque . prob[avit]. The second story seems to have been added, or at least rebuilt, about the end of the first century (see below), but nothing else is known of the history of the building until the reign of Boniface VIII (about 1300 A.D.), when the present tower at the north end was erected. Later, Michelangelo destroyed the entire upper and western part, and built the present Palazzo del Senatore directly upon the ancient structure (LS ii. 70). This building, trapezoidal in shape, occupied all the space between the clivus Capitolinus on the south-west and the flight of steps (gradus Monetae ?) whi
