Xenodochium Aniciorum : a mediaeval hospital mentioned twice in
extant literature (Greg. Magn. reg. ix. 8 ; LP xcviii (Leo III) 81 : ora-
torium S. Luciae qui ponitur in xenodochium qui appellatur Aniciorum).
This must be S. Lucia delle Botteghe Oscure (HCh 306) : this site just
north of the circus Flaminius would correspond with that suggested for a
house of the Anicii (cf. Domus Aniciorum) by the discovery of an
inscription (CIL vi. 1676). If this identification be correct, the hospital
had occupied the ancient palace (HJ 549 J LPD ii. 46, n. 108 ; Kehr i.
I55-I57 i BC 1906, 275-277 ; Mem. L 5. xvi. 657, 742 ; ASRSP, 1919, 447).
Xenodochium Belisarii : a hospital built by Belisarius in the sixth
century in the via Lata (LP lxi (Vigilius) 2 : fecit autem Belisarius
xenodochium in via Lata et aliud in via Flaminia). Its site is that of
the church of S. Maria in Sinodochio or in Trivio, near the fountain of
Trevi (Arm. 277-286 ; HCh 365-366; LPD i. 300, n. 7, ii. 46, n. 108;
Kehr i. 156). This lies within the limits of the Campus Agrippae (q.v.),
but the fourth-century walls found there cannot have been those con-
structed for the xenodochium (HJ 459 ; BC 1892, 278).
Xenodochium S. Gregorii iuxta Gradus S. Petri : a hospital established
by Gregory the Great, near the steps of S. Peter’s. It is known only
from one passage, of perhaps doubtful value (Petrus Mallius de basil.
Vat. 4 ; Cancellieri de secretariis ii. 733 ; Kehr i. 149 ; Arm. 762, 770 ;
cf. Gregor. Magn. reg. ix. 63 ; LPD ii. 195 ; HCh 258, 259 ; DAP 2. x. 31).
Xenodochium Valeriorum : see Domus Valeriorum.
Xenodochium de Via Nova : a hospital mentioned once in the sixth
century (Greg. Magn. reg. i. 42 ; Kehr i. 156 ; LPD ii. 46, n. 108). It is
doubtful which Nova via is meant.
