CLEMENS, DOMUS

the church of Clemens, near the Moneta, is mentioned in the inscription on a slave's collar of the Constantinian period, tene me quia fug(i) et reboea me Vietori aeolito a(d) dominieu(m) Clementis (CIL xv. 7192). Cf. Hieron. de vir. ill. 15. Presbyters of the titulus Clementis were present at the synods of 499 2nd 595.

Interesting remains of the house, belonging to the second and third centuries A.D., with a fine stucco ceiling in one room, are still to be seen. They include a Mithraeum, the most perfectly preserved of all known in Rome. They had been discovered in 1861 ff. by Father Mullooly; and they have recently been rendered permanently accessible by the construction of a drain (see CASTRA MISENATIUM).
