(1) mentioned once (possibly twice) (Plin. NH xxxvi. 37, in connection with the Laokoon; cf. xxxiv. 55). This house was probably part of the domus Aurea of Nero, occupied by Titus and adjacent to his baths (q.v.), and afterwards destroyed by Trajan to secure room for his thermae (LS ii. 222-228).

(2) on the Quirinal next to the templum gentis Flaviae, and standing in the fourth century (Hist. Aug. xxx. tyr. 33)-if it be not an invention, on the basis of Suet. Dom. i. 5 (cf. GENS FLAVIA, TEMPLUM) as V. Domaszewski thinks (SHA 1916, 7. A, 10, 11).
