In addition to the parapet wall around the Meta Sudans, he also installed a new inscription on the base on the Colossus of Sol. The one new structure he did erect here, the Arch, served as a monumental entranceway to the piazza, thereby framing and appropriating the entire space behind it as Constantine’s own. Constantine’s appropriation of the Flavian piazza thus served to underscore the connection between his neo-Flavian dynasty and that of the first century, and to match Maxentius’ Velian ensemble with his own pseudoForum just down the hill.

For example, the general idea ‘home’ has connotations that seem to be congruent across more than one culture, but particular instances of homes might be very varied. In a Deleuzian way of thinking, my own experience of home would be the 29 Andrew Ballantyne basis from which the idea ‘home’ might be deterritorialized and made more widely applicable. I would then recognize that idea reterritorialized in the homes of sub-Saharan chiefs, or ancient Greeks (and I might well be wrong in recognizing the idea in those places, but without further experience that is what I would tend to do).

This new, flat, open space replaced a densely built up segment of the Domus Aurea’s ‘mile-long portico’, the foundations of which have recently been excavated. 15 The Flavians demolished the north–south portico and repaved the area, thereby restoring the thoroughfare to the fully public realm. The relatively broad, open space of the piazza can be understood not only as a response to the density of the Neronian construction but also as an erasure of its insistently rectilinear contours. It was at the site of the former intersection of the two roads that the Flavians built the Meta Sudans, the monumental fountain that embellished their new piazza.
