ARCUS DOMITIANI (I)

according to Suetonius (Dom. 13) and Cassius Dio (lxviii. 1), Domitian erected arches in various parts of the city. The location of none of these is known to us unless a recent theory (PBS iii. 259-262) be true that identifies the arch referred to by Martial (viii. 65) with the arcus manus Carneae of the Mirabilia (5) and Ordo Benedicti (ap. Jordan ii. 666). This arch was near the Piazza Venezia, and perhaps stood at the junction of the via Lata and the VICUS PALLACINAE (q.v.), since Domitian's arches are usually represented on coins as quadrifrontal. See FORTUNA REDUX, TEMPLUM.
