La Forma Urbis e le altre cartografie marmoree di Roma antica alla luce delle ultime ricerche e scoperte
In: Bullettino della Commissione Archeologica Comunale di Roma: 117, 2017
The excavations and archaeological research of the last decades have brought to the light several fragments of engraved marble plans of monuments and private buildings, which are not part of the Forma Urbis. These findings have the aspect of very accurate land records of the city of Rome, which can only derive from the activity of the urban prefecture. In addition, three new fragments of the Forma Urbis Severiana come from recent excavations at the Templum Pacis. The first of them depicts some horrea and cannot be placed with certainty on the general plan. The second belongs to the first top row of the Forma Urbis and depicts the path of an aqueduct, which is identifiable with the final stretch of the Aqua Claudia, also known as the Archi Celimontani. Finally, the third fragment was part of the plate adjacent to the preceding and shows part of a compound of barracks, which might be identified as the Cohors Quinta Vigilum, close to the church of S. Maria in Domnica.
