gardens of Pompeius Magnus in the campus Martius
(Plut. Pomp. 44; Vell. ii. 60
. 3; Asc. in Mil. arg. 34). They were given
to Antonius by Caesar after Pompeius' death (App. B.C. iii. 14
; Cic. Phil.
), and were still called Pompeiani in the early empire (CIL vi.
). Twice (Asc. in Mil. pp. 37, 51 Or.) 1
in connection with these
gardens, horti superiores are spoken of in a way to imply that there
were upper and lower parts, and the inference has been drawn that
these parts lay at the foot and on the slope of the Pincian respectively.
In this case, they must have been entirely on the east side of the via
Lata (RE viii. 2486
; HJ 492-3).
