The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Villa Torlonia, W Tusculum

Marzano offers the clearest summary of this confusing site. Various remains on the site of the Villa Torlonia have led to a variety of interpretations about the nature, identity, and orientation of the Roman villa(s) that once stood on the site. While a number of artificial terraces remain on the site, the nature of the masonry employed has led to numerous hypotheses about the chronology of the ancient structures. The traditional reading linked the ancient villa to Licinius Lucullus, based on supposed epigraphic evidence. This hypothesis is also debated to the extent that the identity of the site and the validity of the label "villa of Lucullus" is uncertain.
