Santa Costanza is a 4th-century church in Rome, Italy, on the Via Nomentana, which runs north-east out of the city. According to the traditional view, it was built under Constantine I as a mausoleum for his daughter Constantina (also known as Constantia or Costanza) who died in 354 AD. His other daughter Helena, wife of Julian, who died in 360 AD, was also buried here. In the Middle Ages it was dedicated as a church to Santa Costanza (Saint Constance), who was regarded as a saint. It was built next to, and in connection with, the 4th century Basilica of Santa Agnese (Saint Agnes). Both buildings were constructed over the earlier catacombs in which Saint Agnes is believed to be buried.
