Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, VENUS VERTICORDIA, AEDES (search)
VENUS VERTICORDIA, AEDES a temple built in 114 B.C., in accordance with instructions of the Sibylline books, to atone for a case of incest among the Vestals and a prodigium that followed the acquittal of two at the first trial (Obseq. 37 (97); Lydus de mens. iv. 15; Ov.
