Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, THEATRUM POMPEI (search)
when Tiridates, king of Armenia, visited Rome, Nero is said to have gilded the scaena and the exterior of the theatre for that one occasion, and to have stretched purple awnings over the cavea (Plin. cit. xxxiii. 54; Cass. Dio lxii. 6. 1-2). In 80 the scaena was burned (Cass. Dio lxvi. 24. 2), but must have been repaired very soon. Under Severus some restoration must have been carried out, for there are two inscriptions of Q. Acilius Fuscus, who was procurator operis theatri Pompeiani in 209-211 A.D. (Pros. i. 6. 47; CIL viii. 1439; xiv. 154; cf. NS 1880, 471, and CIL vi. 1031). In 247 the theatre was burned again (Hier. a. Abr. 2263), and probably under Carinus (Hist. Aug. Car. 19), for it was restored by Diocletian and Maximian (Chron. 148). Other restorations are recorded, by Arcadius and Honorius (CIL vi. 1191, cf. 1193; Mitt. 1899, 251-259), and finally by Symmachus at the command of Theodoric between 507 and 511 (Cassiod. Var. iv. 51; cf. Sym. Rel. 8. 3). Successive restorations

mark with the consular date 206 A.D. upon a mass of Greek statuary marble (Ann. d. Inst. 1870, p. 193, No. 279) has nothing to do with the date of the commencement of the thermae. A lead pipe found here (CIL xv. 7381) bears the names of Q. Aiacius Modestus and Q. Aiacius Censorinus, of whom the former is probably identical with one of the quindecimviri sacris faciundis of the ludi saeculares of 204 A.D. (CIL vi. 32327-32329, 32332; cf. p. 3261), who was legatus of upper Germany between 209 and 211 A.D. CIL xiii. 7417 (in the notes the date is wrongly given as 209-214), 7441. Elagabalus (Hist. Aug. Heliog. 17. 8) is said to have added porticoes which were finished by Alexander Severus (cf. id. Alex. 25. 6); but the truth of the statement is doubtful (SHA 1916. 7. A, 7-8), though it has generally been taken to refer to the peribolus. Hulsen, who had already pointed out that not a single brick-stamp is to be found in the peribolus (Hulsen-Iwanoff, op. cit. 57--an observation which is c
