Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, GRAECOSTASIS (search)
uth. On the other hand, we are told that in 304 B.C. Cn. Flavius erected a small bronze shrine (aedicula) to CONCORDIA (q.v.) on the Graecostasis quae tunc supra Comitium erat (Plin. NH xxxiii. 19), and this 'aedes ' is also spoken of as 'in area Volcani ' (Liv. ix. 46)-a statement that may mean that the Graecostasis had been moved or had ceased to exist at all in Pliny's day. About 30 B.C. sacrifices were offered to Luna 'in Graecostasi' (Fast. Pinc., CIL i². p. 219), and for the years 137, 130, 124 B.C., it is recorded that it rained blood or milk on the Graecostasis (Obseq. de prod. 24, 28, 31). The Graecostasis was therefore an open platform between the comitium and the forum, on the site afterwards occupied by the arch of Severus, and eastwards. Cf.

For a plan and section of the foundations, see De Angelis, Relazione 1899-1902, 106, 107; and for the view that the podium is of an earlier date than the rest, see also Mitt. 1892, 108; 1893, 293. For the entasis, see Mem. Am. Acad. iv. 122, 142. although the marble covering and the whole superstructure date from the early empire. So Jahrb. d. Inst. 1921, 68; Ath. Mitt. 1914, 25. The entablature is missing, and the roof is modern. On the whole this identification is more probable than any other that has been suggested, Delbruck (Hellenistische Bauten, ii. 43) identifies it with the temple of Hercules erected about 130 B.C. by Aemilius Paullus (p. 257). Cf. also SOL ET LUNA, AEDES. but far from certain (Jord. i. 2. 485; Altm. 22-30, 33-36; ZA 248-251 (whose attribution to the period of Severus is doubtful). See D'Esp. Fr. i. 40-43; DuP 72; TF 136).3
