e remains were found in 1888 in a room paved with black and white mosaic (NS 1888, 391 ; BC 1888, 401; CIL vi. 30876). This inscription (cf. also RE vii. 35) belongs to the Severan period, and repairs at that time are vouched for by brickstamps (CIL xv. 3: Castris praetori(s) Aug. n.) which should be attributed to this period rather than to that of M. Aurelius and Commodus. The bearded head is found again on CIL xv. 381 (PBS x. 22 n. 4). A Christian cemetery of the beginning of the sixth century was also found in the castra (De Rossi, Roma Sott. i. 218; Grisar, Geschichte Roms, i. 668). Certain antiquarians of the sixteenth and fifteenth centuries speak of an arcus Gordiani near the porta Chiusa (for reff. see HJ 390, n. 45; LS i. 169; BC 1913, 38), and this has been connected by some with architectural fragments found in the via Gaeta and the viale Castro Pretorio (BC 1872-3, 103, 233-237). One or more such arches may very probably have stood in or near the castra, but
ose of Tiberius; for the latter, see RA 41-46, and especially fig. 46, in which both the lines of battlements are seen). The gates on the north and east sides were also walled up by Maxentius (?). In 312 Constantine disbanded the praetorian guard and dismantled their barracks, presumably by destroying the inner walls that had not been used by Aurelian (Zos. ii. 17; Aur. Vict. Caes. xl. 25; Lact. de mort. pers. 26), although a part of the west wall is reported as standing in the sixteenth century (LS ii. 243; HJ 389, n. 41). Within the castra was the shrine of the standards of the guard (CIL vi. 1609; Herod. iv. 4. 5; v. 8. 5-7), a tribunal, on which these standards were set up, restored by the statores attached to the barracks (CIL vi. 3559; WS 1902, 356-358), a shrine of Mars (CIL vi. 2256), and an armamentarium, or imperial armoury, mentioned twice by Tacitus (Hist. i. 38. 80) and in two inscriptions (CIL vi. 999, 2725; RE ii. 1176). In the north part of the castra,
CASTRA PRAETORIA * the barracks of the praetorian guard, built by Tiberius at the instigation of Sejanus in 21-23 A.D. when these troops were quartered permanently within the city (Suet. Tib. 37; Tac. Ann. iv. 2; Cass. Dio lvii. 9. 6; Schol. Iuv. x. 95). They were in the extreme north- eastern part of Rome, just beyond the inhabited district (Plin. NH iii. 67 ; Suet. Nero 48; Not. Reg. VI), about 500 metres east of the agger, on a site that was one of the highest in Rome (59-60 metres above sea-level), and commanded both the city and the roads leading to the east and north-east. The camp was constructed on the usual Roman model, forming a rectangle 440 metres long and 380 wide, with rounded corners. The longer axis, the cardo maximus, ran nearly north and south, and at its ends, in the middle of the shorter sides, were the porta praetoria and the porta decumana. It is not certain, however, whether the porta praetoria was on the north side or the south (HJ 387-388 nort
