  Domus Augustiana
by martin_nl

The private wing of the Palace of Domitian was called the Domus Augustiana. It's curving facade with the main entrance faced the Circus Maximus. On entering from this side, one passed through the outer chambers and came to an inner court surrounded by columns, the peristyle. This inner court was largely occupied by a fountain which consisted of four shiel half-moons shaped. Around this courtyard the rooms of Domitian were symmetrically ranged on two floors.

Directions: Left of the Palatine Museum and the Domus Flavia and right of the stadium.
