y guardrooms on the slope above vanished, in their turn, behind even more lofty vaults and arches, which united the palace above to the new Atrium Vestae below, which is of the same period. As a link to unite these two great structures, Hadrian also built the majestic ramp by which one still ascends to the Palatine' ; (AJA 1924, 398 and pl. x (III. 23) ; the plans in LF 29=LR 155 and ZA 193 are less correct). On the south-west side of the palace there are traces of work of the beginning of the second century A.D. (HJ 78, n. 96), especially in the vaulted chambers described in BC 1894, 95-100; NS 1896, 162; LR 148, and in the open fish pond above them. The domus Tiberiana is mentioned in Hist. Aug. Pius o ; Marcus 6; Verus 2, 6, as the residence of the emperors at that time (for the only evidence of reconstruction, see above), though by DOMUS COMMODIANA (Commodus 12) the DOMUS AUGUSTIANA (q.v.) is probably meant; and its library is spoken of by Fronto ad M. Caes. iv. 5, p. 68, Naber, an
TIBERIANA, DOMUS * the palace erected by Tiberius on the north-west half of the Palatine. It is first mentioned in the accounts of the assassination of Galba (Tac. Hist. i. 27 (Otho) ... per Tiberianam domum in Velabrum, inde ad miliarium aureum sub aede Saturni pergit, cf. iii. 84; Suet. Otho 6; Vitell. 15 cum (Vitellius) ... incendium (on the Capitol) eTiberiana prospiceret domo inter epulas; Plut. Galba 24), and must have been destroyed, not in the fire of Nero, but in that of 80 A.D. (Suet. Tit. 8; I-ieron. a.

(which, if this palace, as well as the domus Transitoria, had been destroyed, he could not have done at all), and, as the construction and the brickstamps show, have been rebuilt under Domitian. Remains of an earlier house, in opus reticulatum, may be seen on the north side of the hill facing the Capitol, in
60 ff. as to which we have very scanty information ; the whole rectangle (about 100 by 150 metres) seems to have had a large courtyard with pillars in the centre and to have been divided into three approximately similar parts, to judge from Rosa's plan. A great deal of it (more than is generally supposed) rests upon arched substructions; and that these have, as is only natural, undergone later repairs, is clear from the presence, a long way in, of a copy of the brick-stamp-C1L xv. 1081 (145-155 A.D.); but further investigation is needed. For some fine pieces of pavement in opus sectile, see PT 183. It is, of course, easier to study the outer extremities of the palace. At the north angle we must attribute to Domitian the huge pile, on the level of the forum, erected over the peristyle of Caligula, but on a divergent orientation, which is commonly known as the temple of AUGUSTUS (q.v.) with the two halls behind it, often called the BIBLIOTHECA TEMPLI DIVI AUGUSTI (q.v.), into which the
