a mediaeval hospital mentioned twice in extant literature (Greg. Magn. reg. ix. 8; LP xcviii (Leo III) 8 : oratorium S. Luciae qui ponitur in xenodochium qui appellatur Aniciorum). This must be S. Lucia delle Botteghe Oscure (HCh 306): this site just north of the circus Flaminius would correspond with that suggested for a house of the Anicii (cf. DOMUS ANICIORUM) by the discovery of an inscription (CIL vi. 1676). If this identification be correct, the hospital had occupied the ancient palace (HJ 549; LPD ii. 46, n. 108; Kehr i. 155-157; BC 1906, 275-277; Mem. L 5. xvi. 657, 742; ASRSP, 1919, 447).
