Biography

1st century BC domus that housed an unusual sanctuary in the region.

The domus belonged to Gaius Victorius Victorinus, a centurion of the 7th Legion who collected taxes at Lucus Augusti. However, in the 3rd century, the owner was expropriated and the house was partially destroyed since it was located on the perimeter where the new wall was planned to be built.


Victorinus sitúa en un lugar muy destacado a sus dos libertos, en igualdad con la statio, es decir, la institución de cuya custodia se encarga el destacamento comandado por el centurión. Las razones por las que honra la statio y a sus libertos, que no parecen guardar relación entre sí, nos son desconocidas. Es extraño que celebre en el espacio doméstico la statio y que vincule a sus libertos al espacio público de la statio.
