CUBI´CULUMusually means a sleeping and dwelling room in a Roman house [DOMUS], but also applied to the pavilion or box in which the Roman emperors were accustomed to witness the public games. (Suet. Nero 12; Plin. Paneg.51.) It appears to have been so called, because the emperors were accustomed to recline in the cubicula, instead of sitting, as was anciently the practice, in a sella curulis. (Ernesti, ad Suet. l. c.）
