Opere del percorso
All that remains of the sumptuous residence of the emperor Licinius Gallieno is a monumental nymphaeum, the so-called Temple of Minerva Physician, not far from Termini Station.
Several notable sculptures were found reused inside it, outstanding amongst which are the statues of two magistrates commencing the circus games, perhaps Quintus Aurelius Simmacus and his son Memmius Simmacus, who had high profiles in late fourth century AD Rome.
