Regio XII - Piscina Publica

This region is named for the public swimming grounds contained within. It is also a notable place for the private homes of some of Rome's most notable nobles.


The region of the Piscina Publica was also nicknamed "the small Aventine" (Aventinus Minor). The region was known mostly as a residential area, but also for it's large public bath.

Adjacent to the homes of the wealthy (the Domi) were the condominiums of the middle-class, in what was called the subura (the suburbs).
