Villa Quintilius on Via Appia

Villa of the Quintilii on Via Appia (in Rome) was built by consuls from 151 CE – brothers Sextus Quintilius Valerius Maximus and Sextus Quintilius Condianus. The impressive remains of this suburban villa (villa suburbana) have survived to this day.

The villa had extensive therms, to which water was supplied by a private aqueduct, and a hippodrome, which ruins date back to the 4th century CE.

The estate was so impressive that Emperor Commodus in 182 CE condemned its owners to death and took over the property.
