Sulpicia, Carmina Omnia (ed. Anne Mahoney), section 1 (search)
Sulpicia was a Roman of noble stock. Her father was Servius Sulpicius Rufus, consul in 51 BC. Earlier, in 62, Sulpicius had prosecuted Lucius Murena for bribery in the consular elections; Cicero's speech for the defense survives. There are letters between Cicero and Sulpicius in book 4 of Cicero's collected letters: letters 1-4 and 6 are from Cicero, letter 5 is Sulpicius's letter of condolence on the death of Cicero's daughter in March 45, and in letter 12 Sulpicius tells Cicero about the assassination of Marcellus in May of that year. Sulpicius died in 43, and Cicero's ninth Philippic argues in favor of giving him a public funeral. Sulpicia's guardian was her uncle Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus, who proposed the measure giving Augustus the title pater patriae in 2 BC (see Suet. Aug. 58). Messalla had fought on the side of Brutus and Cassius at the start of the civil war, but ultimately joined Octavian's side. He was consul in 31 along with Octavian. Messalla is best kn

and ended their feud. After that, followed by the applause of all, they were escorted to the Capitoline. Both the interest of the leaders in such a situation and the readiness of the censors to yield were notably approved and lauded by the senate. Then, on the demand of the censors that the sum of money which they were to use on public works be assigned them, one year's revenue was decreed to them.Livy has not mentioned a corresponding sum before. The censors of 169 B.C. received the revenue for half a year (XLIV. xvi. 9). There is no translation of the expression into definite figures until 62 B.C. (Plutarch, Pompey, 45), when one year's revenue amounted to 50,000,000 denarii. Frank (Economic Survey of Ancient Rome, Baltimore, 1933, I. 152-153) estimates the revenue in 179 B.C. as perhaps one-tenth of that sum. He further calculates that the Basilica Aemilia (li. 5 below) would have cost 12,000 denarii, so that a good deal could be done with 5,000,000 denarii.

r the reception of foreign ambassadors, as those of Perseus in 170 B.C. (Liv. xli. 22), and for such meetings as that between the senators and Gulussa (Liv. xlii. 24). From a reference in Varro (LL vii. 57 equites pictos vidi in Aesculapii aede vetere et ferentarios adscriptos; Urlichs, Malerei vor Caesar 10) and some inscriptions (CIL vi. 6, 7, 12) it appears certain that the first temple was rebuilt or restored towards the end of the republic; perhaps when the pons Fabricius was built in 62 B.C. the first temple was decorated with frescoes (Varro, loc. cit.; Liv. xliii. 4). It is altogether probable that there was further restoration during the empire, perhaps under Antoninus Pius (HJ 144), but there is no direct evidence therefor (cf. Besnier, L'Ile Tiberine 176, 191-192; JRS 1911, 187-195). There are no certain remains of this temple, but it probably occupied the site of the present church of S. Bartolomeo, and some of the columns of the nave probably belonged to the temple or it

M. TULLIUS CICERO, DOMUS on the north-east side of the Palatine hill, over- looking the forum, in conspectu totius urbis (de domo 10 ; ef. 103, 114; pro Planeio 66; ad Att. ii. 24. 3; Plut. Cie. 8). Cieero bought this house in 62 B.C. for HS. 3,500,000 (ad Fam. v. 6. 2 ; Gell. xii. 12) from Marcus Crassus (not P. Crassus as stated in Ps. Sall. in Cic. 2; Ps. Cie. in Sail. 14, 20). It adjoined the PORTICUS CATULI (q.v.), and was built on the site previously occupied by the house of the tribune M. Livius Drusus (Vell. ii. 14). When Cicero was banished, Clodius burned his house, enlarged the porticus of Catulus, and erected a shrine of Libertas (de domo 62, 16; App. BC ii. 15; Vell. ii. 45; Plut. Cie. 33; Cass. Dio xxxviii. 17. 6). After Cicero's recall legal proceedings were instituted, and he recovered the site, and damages sufficient to partially rebuild the house (Cass. Dio xxxix. II and 20 ; adAtt. iv. I. 7, 2.5, 3.2). The house afterwards belonged to L. Marcius Censorinus, cons

wall was erected which in shape reproduced exactly the sides of a Roman ship (Ann. d. Inst. 1867, 389 ff.; Durm, Baukunst, fig. 537). A considerable part of the travertine stern can still be seen at the east end of the island (LR 19). An obelisk, fragments of which are in the museum at Naples, is thought to have represented the mast. We are not informed as to the time when this was done, but the remains of the walls point to the same period as that of the construction of the pons Fabricius (62 B.C.) and pons Cestius (70-42 B.C.), and it is possible that the erection of these two bridges was part of the same plan as the building of the ship. Before the building of these stone bridges, the island was doubtless connected with the left bank by a wooden structure at least as early as the time when the cult of Aesculapius was established (cf. Liv. xxxv. 21. 5, where the flood of 193 B.C. is said to have destroyed ' duos pontes '). For a complete discussion of the history, topography, and an

PONS CESTIUS the modern Ponte S. Bartolomeo, the first stone bridge from the island to the right bank of the river. It is mentioned only in Not. app. and Pol. Silv. (545), but probably was built soon after the pons Fabricius. Several Cestii of some prominence are known in this period, and the bridge was probably constructed by one of them, while curator viarum, between 62 and 27 B.C. In the fourth century the pons Cestius was replaced by what was practically a new structure, which the Emperors Valentinian I, Valens and Gratian finished in 369 (Sym. Pan. in Grat. p. 332) and dedicated in 370 as the pons Gratiani. There were two inscriptions recording this event, each in duplicate, the first cut on marble slabs placed on the parapet on each side of the bridge, the second beneath the parapet (CILvi. 1175, 1176). One of the former So also are both the latter (cf. ib. 31250, 31251). is still in situ. The pons Gratiani was 48 metres long and 8.20 wide, with one central arch, 23.65 metre
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PONS FABRICIUS (search)
PONS FABRICIUS the stone bridge between the left bank of the river and the island, named from its builder, L. Fabricius, curator viarum in 62 B.C. (Hor. Sat. ii. 3.35-36; and Porphyr. ad loc.; Cass. Dio xxxvii. 45). The erection of this bridge is recorded in duplicate inscriptions, over the arches on each side, and a restoration in 21 B.C. after the flood of 23 B.C. (Cass. Dio liii. 33) by the consuls, Q. Lepidus and M. Lollius, in another inscription over the arch nearest the city (CIL ia. 751=vi. 1305=31594). It is probable that this stone bridge replaced an earlier one of wood. In the Middle Ages it was known both by its official name (Not. app.; Pol. Silv. 545; Mirab. II) and as the pons Iudaeorum (Graphia 10) because it was close to the Ghetto. This is the best preserved bridge in Rome, being practically the original structure. It is built of tufa and peperino faced with travertine, part of which has been replaced with brick, and has two semi-circular arches with a smaller o
