Archaeologically speaking the Basilica of Saint Clemente in Rome (Basilica di San Clemente al Laterano) is a three-tiered complex of buildings: (1) the present basilica built just before the year 1100 - (2) beneath the present basilica is a 4th-century basilica that had been converted out of the home of a Roman nobleman, part of which had in the 1st century briefly served as an early church, and the basement of which had in the 2nd century briefly served as a mithraeum - (3) the home of the Roman nobleman which had been built on the foundations of republican era villa and warehouse that had been destroyed in the Great Fire of 64 AD.
The present richly illustrated publication i.a. describes the history of the excavations of San Clemente. In Italian with one section (epigraphy) in English.
