HOLOVITREUM the palace (palatium) of Chromatius, probably Agrestius Chromatius, praef. urbi about 248 A.D. The building took its name from its decoration of glass mosaics representing the heavenly bodies (Acta S. Sebastiani 20 Ian. p. 629; Mirab. 29), and traces of it were found in 1741 when the church of S. Stefano in Piscinula in the Via dei Banchi vecchi was destroyed (Mon. L. i. 548; Jord. ii. 535 ; HJ 597-8).
