Note 105
From Chapter 31 of the Decline & Fall

The historian Sallust, who usefully practised the vices which he has so eloquently censured, employed the plunder of Numidia to adorn his palace and gardens on the Quirinal hill. The spot where the house stood is now marked by the church of St. Susanna, separated only by a street trom the baths of Diocletian, and not far distant trom the Salarian gate. See Nardini, Roma Anpica, p. 192, 193, and the great Plan of Modern Rome, by Nolli.
