Hippodrome of Domitian

Hippodrome of Domitian

Domitian’s private residence was connected with an enormous garden in the form of a stadium for chariot races, 160 metres long. Decorated by fountains, its perimeter was bounded by a two-storey portico. A spine ran down the centre of the stadium and formed the longitudinal axis around which the chariots raced.

A little more than a century after construction of the Domus Augustana, the Emperor Septimius Severus ordered his baths to be built next to the Stadium as part of a vast program of architectural improvement of the slopes of the Palatine.
