SPURIUS MAXIMUS, DOMUS

on the Quirinal, under the Palazzo Barberini, where an inscribed pipe (CIL xv. 7540) and some ruins of a private house have been found. This Spurius was perhaps L. Spurius Maximus, trib. vigilum under Severus (Pros. iii. 258. 583; Mitt. 1897, 85; BC 1872-3,1 227; HJ 427).

1 The drawings of a nymphaeum with well-preserved paintings which was found in this house referred to in BC cit. are at Windsor (Inv. 12080, 1208 ; not in the volume referred to by Lanciani). There are also drawings in the Baddeley codex (xci, xcii; see PBS viii. 49, and reff., to which may be added Winckelmann, Gesch. d. Kunst vii. 3, ยง 6 (Werke v. io6=Opere, ed. Fea, ii. 54), 'das sogenannte Nymphaum an eben dem Orte hat der Moder vertilget).'
