Horti Gatae


Horti Gatae

North of the horti Caesaris were the horti Getae, which probably lay on the ridge and the east slope of the Janiculum, covering the ground now occupied by the villa Corsini, the villa Lante, and perhaps part of the convent of S. Onofrio. These gardens were probably constructed by Severus, under the name of his youngest son, and some remains of their works of art and buildings have been discovered. (Platner)
