see (1) DOMUS CLEMENTIS, (2) THERMAE ANTONINIANAE. (3) Another, in Piazza S. Silvestro, was built by a certain Tamesius Augentius Olympus, nephew of Nonius Victor, in 357-362, and probably destroyed in 391-2 (Cumont, Textes et Monuments, i. 354, No. 17 ; CIL vi. 754; PT 124). (4) See DOMUS NUMMIORUM. (5) A well-preserved Mithraeum (with a Lararium above) was found in 1885 east of S. Martino Ai Monti (BC 1885, 27-38; Lanciani, Ancient Rome, 191-194; Cumont, Textes et Mon. ii. 199, No. 15; HJ 316, 317). (6) Another was found opposite S. Vitale in the Vigna Muti (Cumont, op. cit. ii. 196-7, No. 10). (7) For a small Mithraeum found on the Quirinal (in Via Mazzarino), see CIL vi. 31039. (8) A Mithraeum existed on the Capitol as late as 1391, but it was destroyed between 1550 and 1594, and the relief belonging to it is in the Louvre (No. 559; Cumont, ii. 193-195, No. 6). A small chapel with a relief was found in 1872: ibid. No. 7: i. 35 ; cf. BC 1872-3, 111 (the reference in the legend of S. Silvester is to a grotto of Hecate). The position of the rest of the Mithraea enumerated by Cumont (op. cit.) cannot be fixed. (g) For a (doubtful) Mithraeum on the Aventine near S. Saba, see NS 1925, 384.
