 p585  Xenodochia

Collecting 5 entries on p585 of

Samuel Ball Platner (as completed and revised by Thomas Ashby):
A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome,
London: Oxford University Press, 1929.

Xenodochium Aniciorum: a mediaeval hospital mentioned twice in extant literature (Greg. Magn. reg. ix.8; LP xcviii (Leo III) 81: oratorium S. Luciae qui ponitur in xenodochium qui appellatur Aniciorum). This must be S. Lucia delle Botteghe Oscure (HCh 306): this site just north of the circus Flaminius would correspond with that suggested for a house of the Anicii (cf. Domus Aniciorum) by the discovery of an inscription (CIL VI.1676). If this identification be correct, the hospital had occupied the ancient palace (HJ 549; LPD II.46, n108; Kehr I.155‑157; BC 1906, 275‑277; Mem. L 5.xvi.657, 742; ASRSP, 1919, 447).

Xenodochium Belisarii: a hospital built by Belisarius in the sixth century in the via Lata (LP lxi (Vigilius) 2: fecit autem Belisarius xenodochium in via Lata et aliud in via Flaminia). Its site is that of the church of S. Maria in Sinodochio or in Trivio, near the fountain of Trevi (Arm. 277‑286; HCh 365‑366; LPD I.300, n7, ii.46, n108; Kehr I.156). This lies within the limits of the Campus Agrippae (q.v.), but the fourth-century walls found there cannot have been those constructed for the xenodochium (HJ 459; BC 1892, 278).

Xenodochium S. Gregorii iuxta Gradus S. Petri: a hospital established by Gregory the Great, near the steps of S. Peter's. It is known only from one passage, of perhaps doubtful value (Petrus Mallius de basil. Vat. 4; Cancellieri de secretariis II.733; Kehr I.149; Arm. 762, 770; cf. Gregor. Magn. reg. ix.63; LPD II.195; HCh 258, 259; DAP 2.x.31).

Xenodochium Valeriorum: see Domus Valeriorum.

Xenodochium de Via Nova: a hospital mentioned once in the sixth century (Greg. Magn. reg. i.42; Kehr I.156; LPD II.46, n108). It is doubtful which Nova via is meant.
