probably baths, constructed by or named after one of the Agrippinae, but known only from a fifteenth-century copy of an inscription on a lead pipe (CIL xv. 7247; cf. vi. 29765, 36605). Ruins of what may have been this lavacrum were found about 1510 on the Viminal, near S. Lorenzo in Panisperna (HJ 375; LS i. 230-231; BC 1914, 368-369). It is not impossible that we should read lavacrum Agrippinae for Agrippae in Hist. Aug. Hadr. 19; this would explain why it is so far from the Pantheon in the list of buildings in Rome restored by Hadrian.
