the tomb of a certain Lucilius Paetus, tribunus militum under Augustus (CIL vi. 32932), found in 1885 about 300 metres beyond the Porta Salaria. It was a round mausoleum, 34 metres in diameter, on which stood, probably, a conical mound of earth about 17 metres high (NS 1885, 190; HJ 437-438).1

1 Lanciani (Pagan and Christian Rome, 284) has conjectured that the layer of earth under which it and other tombs in the neighbourhood had been buried in ancient times came from the excavation of the Forum of Trajan.
