The Palace of Constantine. The palace of the family of the Laterani came into the hands of Constantine, through his wife Fausta. Constantine donated it to the Church in the time of Miltiades, around 311. It was used as the residence of the popes for about 1000 years until the departure of the popes from Rome during the Avignon period. A small structure is on the site now.
The verso of this leaf contains text in three languages with page title in Italian: Palazzo di Costantino.
