a structure that Gordianus III is said to have intended
building at the foot of the Pincian hill, 1000 feet in length, large enough
to extend to the via Flaminia (Hist. Aug. Gord. 32). According to
Domaszewski (SHA 1916, 7
. A, 9), this is simply an invention (the length
being taken from Suet. Nero 31), though the site corresponds to that of
the templum Solis. Cf., however, Mem. L. 5. xvii. 531.
