Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106 BC – 43 BC
The House of Marcus Tullius Cicero. The information below is excerpted (with some edits) from A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome. Domus, M. Tullius Cicero or the House of Marcus Tullius Cicero is located on the north-east side of the Palatine hill, overlooking the forum. Cicero bought this house in 62 B.C. from Marcus Crassus. It was built on the site previously occupied by the house of the tribune M. Livius Drusus. When Cicero was banished, Clodius burned his house, enlarged the porticus of Catulus, and erected a shrine of Libertas. After Cicero's recall legal proceedings were instituted, and he recovered the site, and damages sufficient to partially rebuild the house. The house afterwards belonged to L. Marcius Censorinus, consul in 39 B.C., and to Statilius Sisenna, consul in 16 A.D.
