the only authority for the existence of a house of Catiline on the Palatine is a passage in Suet. de Gramm. 17; M. Verrius Flaeeus transiit in Palatium eum tota schola docuitque in atrio Catulinae domus, quae pars Palatii tunc (before B.C. 4) erat. This passage is often (e.g. in Thes. Ling. Lat. Onomasticon, ii. 277. 35) referred to the house of Catulus (see the next article) ; but it may be argued that the adjeetive of Catulus is Catulianus (Plin. NH xxxiv. 77) just as Catullianus is the adjeetive of Catullus; whereas Catulina is admissible as a form of Catilina. We know nothing of its site; LR I 9 places it ' on the edge of the hill facing the Circus Maximus '; Boni preferred to identify it with the house whieh he diseovered under the so-ealled lararium of the Flavian palaee (JRS 1913, 248; ef. DOMUS AUGUSTIANA, p. 161).
