mentioned in Reg. as in Region IX and in Pol. Silv. (545). These halls were undoubtedly near the TEMPLUM MATIDIAE (q.v.), and from the evidence of a medallion of Hadrian (Eckhel vi. p. 472; Gnecchi ii. p. 5, No. 25, pl. 39, No. 5) they seem to have stood on each side of the area in front (north) of this temple, a little back from the east and west sides of the present Piazza Capranica; while the domed building known as the Tempio di Siepe in the seventeenth century may have had a corresponding building opposite to it, each standing at the north end of one of these two basilicas, as Hulsen supposes. It cannot have given its name to the church of S. Stefano de Trullo, which was near the Hadrianeum (LS i. 132; HCh 485; BC 1883, 5-16; Mitt. 1899, 141-153; HJ 575; Hulsen in OJ 1912, 136-142; RA 134).
