Precocity and longovity aro generally
bellevcxl to bo incompatible, though orne
striking exceptions to tho rulo can bo cited.
(Julntus Sulplclous Maxlmua, who died at
Homo during tbo ralgn of Domltinn, was
not ono of these, for ho only reached tho
ago of eleven years. This young gentle
man mado a great sensation in hts dny,
but hS famo patted into oblivion and was
rovlvod but a faw wooks ago, undor vory
singular circumstances. Tho Porto Halara,
or Sail Gate, of tho city of Homo was built
in a hurry by iioltsarlus during the reign
of Honnriui, near tho cloiu of tho fourth
centurvoftho Christian era.
Tho "tlerco Visigoths were pouring down
upon tho imperial city, and tlio bravo Gen
eral repaired tho breaches in tho walls and
strengthened tha defences already in exis
tence with wondorful rapidity. Tho Salt
Gato was ono of tho results of his opera
lions. Brick, stones, and overy othor
available material were piled together in
remarkable confntlon strength, not
beauty being tho object sought. Among
this stonos woro m rural niarblo tombs.
The gate recently became unsafe, and was
taken down. Tho marbles found in it were
carefully examined and subinlttod to tho
Ininectlon of nntlquarlct. Tho most Inter
esting rollc found was n tomb containing
an alto rollovo portrait of a little boy,
dressed in a toga, sotticulating with bis
right hand, and holding a book in hie left.
An inscription boneeth gave tbo following
account of tbo sculptor's art:
