Prof. Alfredo Valvo (Univ. Cattolica di Milano) reports in Il Sussidiario (17/01/2011) on new inscriptions brought out in the area between Piazza Venezia and the Fori Romani by the works for Rome’s new Underground line. Valvo mentions two pieces: in p.zza Venezia, an inscription from the praef. Urbis F. Felix Passifilus Paulinus (a.D. 473); and in front of the Pal. Madonna dei Loreto, several fragment which could pertain to Hadrian’s dedicatory parentibus suis in the temple of divus Traianus and diva Plotina (CIL VI, 31215 = ILS 306; news of this were circulated two weeks ago by a post in flickr). Valvo also writes both findings are forthocming in a special issue of Bollettino d’arte (2010).
