Officinae Minii


Officinae Minii

Between the temples of Flora and Quirinus were the officinae minii, or mills for the working of the cinnabar brought from Spain. Assuming that the temple of Flora was near the Capitolium vetus these officinae were probably on the north side of the Alta Semita, the site now occupied by the east part of the royal palace.
