Geography

The Sacred Antinous is always mentioning places -- from ancient cities that no longer exist to the street names and buildings of Rome. Wherever possible, we will endeavour to illuminate their location with the use of various maps and photos.

 

Paedagogium ad Caput Africae

Caput Africae

The photo of the model above highlights the street that was called Caput Africae. The elementary school that Antinous likely attended was probably located somewhere within this rectangular area. See Epistle 001 - Arrival at Caelian Hill.

 

Paedagogium at the Domus Gelotiana

Caput Africae

The photo of the model above highlights the building that was called the Domus Gelotiana. This is believed to have been the site of the finishing school for pages and is where archaeologists discovered the grafitto of the donkey upon the cross ("Anaxamenos worships his god"). See Epistle 035 - Foolish Carisius.
