* an arch, attributed to Domitian by Boni, has been recently discovered on the clivus Palatinus, not far below the state apartments of the domus Augustiana (CJ xv. (1919-20), 297; Boni in Illustrazione Italiana, 1918, i. 373-375). Nothing is preserved but the concrete foundations of the two piers (which were obviously wide enough to admit of lateral openings), the pavement of the road which passed through the central arch, and some architectural fragments; and it would be natural to suppose it to have been destroyed after his death (cf. EQUUS DOMITIANI). The character of the concrete, however, seems to point to an Augustan date (AJA 1923, 400; Mem. Am. Acad. v. 120).
