HORTI VARIANI

gardens that are mentioned only once (Hist. Aug. Aurel. I), where the context points to a location on the Pincian hill or beyond- unless indeed their invention is due to a misunderstanding of Hist. Aug. Heliogab. 14. 5; SHA 1916, 7. A, 13. See NS 1922, 137; LR 397, where they are treated as identical with the HORTI SPEI VETERIS (q.v.), but wrongly (Ml6. 1899, 125), for a proposed site, partly inside, partly outside the porta Praesnestina; and cf. OBELISCUS ANTINOI.
