consul ordinarius in 331 A.D. (not 317, cf. Gotting. Nachr. 1904, 345), situated on the Esquiline east of S. Maria Maggiore. The inscription, in mosaic, was copied in the sixteenth century (Iunius Bassus, v.c. consul ordinarius propria impensa a solo fecit et dedicavit feliciter, CIL vi. 1737) in the apse of a richly decorated hall belonging to it. He died in 359 (ib. 32004).

In the time of Pope Simplicius (468-483) the hall was dedicated by the munificence of the Goth Valila (or Flavius Theodobius) as the church of S. Andrea cata Barbara Patricia (LP xlviii. 1).

Drawings of the fine decorations in marble and mosaic were made by Giuliano da Sangallo (Barb. 31' and text, p. 47) and at the end of the sixteenth century (see Hulsen in Festschrift fur Julius Schlosser (Vienna, 1926), 53-67, at the end of which a list of the drawings is given; add Windsor, Portfolio 5, No. 60 (Inv. 12121), for which see PBS vi. 186, n. 2; and Holkham, ii. 8, 9, 11; Baddeley xciv., for which see PBS viii. 40, 49; Caylus 30, which represents the mosaic of the triumphator); and two of the mosaics are still in the Palazzo Massimi (MD 4114, 4115) and two more in the Palazzo dei Conservatori (Cons. 260, 264, q.v. for full bibliography).
