(edd.), Domestic Space in the Roman World: Pompeii and Beyond, JRA Supp. Ser. 22 (Portsmouth, 1997); Wallace-Hadrill, , Houses and Society in Pompeii and Herculaneum (Princeton, 1994). In terms of influencing this paper, however, the most important work is Wiseman, T., ‘Conspicui postes tectaque digna deo: The Public Image of Aristocratic and Imperial Houses in the Late Republic and Early Empire’ in L'Urbs: Espace urbain et histoire, Collection de l'Ecole française de Rome 98 (1987).

8. His speeches are preserved – the De Domo Sua was delivered to the Senate in late September 57 B.C., less than a month after his return to Rome. The house was eventually returned to Cicero but in 56 B.C. Clodius claimed that various prodigies which had been inspected by the soothsayers pointed at the anger of the gods over the return of the house and, more specifically, the temple of Liberty. The De Haruspicum Responsis is Cicero's response to these allegations.

38. The fact that the Basilicas Fulvia and Aemilia were one and the same is taken from Varro, , De Ling. Lat. 6.4 where he refers to the Basilica Aemilia et Fulvia. However, both on grounds of new archaeological evidence suggesting a third basilica in the western section of the Forum and of analysis of the literary sources, Steinby has argued that they should be seen as two separate entities. This view does not have universal approval and, indeed, is not discussed at all in Richardson (n. 13), 54–6. The views of Steinby can be found in Steinby, , Lexicon Topographicum Urbis Romae (Rome, 1993) Vol. 1, 167–8. See also in that volume H. Bauer, 173–5 and 183–7.

52. Cicero's plans for the shrine appear in Ad Att. 12.12; 12.18; 12.19; 12.35; 12.36. Cicero's determination that the shrine should be in a most public situation is made clear at 12.19. It is worth noting that this was not Cicero's only attempt to take part in public building projects. Cicero, , Ad Att. 4.16.8 sees Ciceroinvesting in Caesarian building projects. Such investment, of course, was of no benefit to the memoria of the Tullii Cicerones and as such, has not been dealt with in the main text.
