BALNEUM CLAUDII ETRUSCI

mentioned by Statius, who describes it in silv. i. 5. Its situation is unknown; but as it was supplied by the Anio (Vetus or Novus) the aqua Marcia, and the aqua Virgo, it must have been situated in the campus Martius, or at any rate low enough to be within the range of distribution of the last-named aqueduct. Cf. Mart. vi. 42, who describes it as luxuriously fitted up, and decorated with coloured marbles, and in a very sunny situation.
