A Christian catacomb within an ancient quarry on the Via Salaria that was in use from the second until the fourth centuries AD. The Catacomb of Priscilla was likely named for Priscilla, a member of the gens Acilia, and contains the oldest known Marian painting (third century AD).

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
