known only from an inscription now in the possession of the American Academy in Rome, a boundary stone between them and the HORTI MARSIANI (q.v.). From it we learn that they belonged to one Ferox Licinianus; and if he is to be identified with (Cn. Pompeius) Ferox Licinianus (Pros. iii. 66. 461), who in turn may be the Pompeius mentioned as one of Domitian's courtiers who was invited to the famous conclave on the great fish (Juv. iv. 109 sqq.) and the ' Licinus ' mentioned by Sidonius Apollinaris (Ep. v. 7), the inscription would belong to the period circa 80-120 A.D. It is, further, possible that CIL vi. 9973 refers to these hor(ti), and not to the hor(rea) Volusiana (AJP 1927, 27, 28). On the other hand a ' vestiarius ' is more appropriate in the latter, and ib. 7289 certainly seems to imply the existence of such horrea.
