PINCIANA, DOMUS

* the house of the Pincii on the Pincian hill, which became imperial property afterwards. Domus Pinciana occurs only in Cassiodorus (Var. iii. 10), but it appears elsewhere as palatium Pinciorum or Pincis (Lib. Pontif. lx. 6, 8). Some of the marble decorations of this house were carried to Ravenna by Theodoric. See AQUA PINCIANA, HORTI ACILIORUM; and for the church of S. Felix in Pincis, cf. Eins. 2. 7; LP xcvii. 50; cvi.; HCh 252; Mon. L. i. 456-459, and the panoramas of Wyngaerde reproduced in BC 1895, pls. vi.-xiii.; 1900, iv.-ix
