the columbarium of the slaves and freedmen of the Statilii, and in particular of M. Statilius Taurus, consul in 44 A.D. and owner of the HORTI TAURIANI (q.v.). It was on the north side of the via Praenestina, about 100 metres inside the porta Praenestina (Maggiore), on the south-west side of the modern Viale Principessa Margherita.1 Three chambers of this tomb were excavated in 1875-1877, and many inscriptions discovered which dated from Augustus to Claudius (CIL vi. 6213-6640 and p.982; Brizio, Pitture e sepolcri scoperte sull' Esquilino, Roma 1876; NS 1877, 314-323; HJ 363; for other inscriptions found in adjacent sepulchral chambers, see BC 1880, 51-75 ; CIL vi. 33083-33190).

1 The name has recently been changed to Viale Principe di Piemonte.
