on a cross street between the Sacra via and the Nova via, perhaps that at the east end of the Atrium Vestae. The house of Cn. Octavius was removed by Scaurus to provide room for the enlargement of his own (Cic. de off. i. 138). This was decorated with four columns of Hymettian marble, brought to Rome by Scaurus in his aedileship in 58 B.C. for the adornment of a temporary theatre (Plin. NH xvii. 5-6; xxxvi. 6). These were afterwards removed to the theatre of Marcellus, where they stood in 42 A.D. The house belonged then to Caecina Largus (as well as that of Crassus, so that they must have been close together).
