Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, AGER L. PETILII: (search)
AGER L. PETILII: property lying sub Ianiculo, but otherwise unknown, where the tomb (q.v.) and books of Numa were said to have been found in 181 B.C. (Cic. de legg. ii. 56; Liv. xl. 29; Val. Max. i. 1. 12; HJ 626).

in 367 B.C. during the disturbances that took place over the passage of the Licinian laws. Its erection was voted by the people immediately after their enactment (Ov. Fast. i. 641-644; Plut. Cam. 42). It stood between the Volcanal and the foot of the Capitoline (Ov. cit. 637-638; Act. Arv. passim; Serv. Aen. ii. 116; Stat. Silv. i. I. 31; Plut. Cam. 42; Varro, LL v. 148, 156), and the space around it was called area Concordiae, which is mentioned only in connection with prodigia of 183 and 181 B.C. (Liv. xxxix. 56. 6; xl. 19. 2; Obseq. 4). The date of the actual erection of the temple is not known; the day of its dedication was probably 22nd July (Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 103), while that of the later structure was 16th January (Ov. Fast. i. 637; Fast. Praen. ad xvii Kal. Feb., CIL i p. 231, 308; Fast. Verol. ap. NS 1923, 196). In 211 B.C. a statue of Victory on its roof was struck down by lightning (Liv. xxvi. 23. 4). In 121 B.C., after the death of C. Gracchus, the senate ordered thi
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PIETAS, AEDES (search)
PIETAS, AEDES (templum, Plin.) : a temple in the forum Holitorium, vowed by M'. Acilius Glabrio in the battle of Thermopylae in 191 B.C., and begun by him, but dedicated in 181 by his son of the same name, who was appointed duumvir for the purpose (Liv. xl. 34. 4; Val. Max. ii. 5. I; cf. Cic. de leg. ii. 28). Mancini conjectures that a fragmentary entry: .. .]tati in Fast. Ant. (ap. NS 1921, 117), under 13th November, should be referred to this temple. It contained a gilded statue of the elder Glabrio, the first of its kind in Rome (locc. citt.). This temple stood at the east end of the area afterwards occupied by the theatre of Marcellus, and was destroyed by Caesar in 44 B.C. when he began preparations for the erection of that building (Plin. NH vii. 12, who is mistaken in his date of the building of the temple; Cass. Dio xliii. 49. 3 ; cf. Delbrueck, Die Drei Tempel am Forum Holitorium in Rom, Rome 1903, 6, for an erroneous theory). Cf., however, Hellenistische Bauten ii. 43,
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, SEP. NUMAE (search)
SEP. NUMAE the tomb of Numa, placed by tradition on the right bank of the Tiber (Fest. 173 ; Dionys. ii. 76. 6), sub Ianiculo (Solin. i. 21), in agro L. Petilii (Liv. xl. 29), haud procul a Fontis ara (Cic. de leg. ii. 56). The body of Numa was said to have been buried in one stone sarcophagus and his sacred books in another (Plut. Numa 22). The alleged discovery of the latter in 181 B.C. (Liv. loc. cit.; Val. Max. i. I. 12) gave rise to great scandal. There is no indication of the exact location of the tomb or of the ager Petilii or of the ara Fontis.
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, VENUS ERUCINA, AEDES (search)
VENUS ERUCINA, AEDES (templum, Ovid;i(ero/n, Strabo, Appian): a temple of the Venus of Mt. Eryx in Sicily (Ov. Fast. iv. 872; Rem. Am. 550) vowed during the war with the Ligurians by L. Porcius Licinus when consul in 184 B.C., and dedicated by him as duumvir in 181 (Liv. xl. 34. 4). It was outside the porta Collina but not far from it (Ov. Fast. iv. 871; Rem. Am. 549; Liv. xxx. 38. io; App. BC i. 93; Fast. Arv. ad ix Kal. Mai, CIL i². p. 214, 215, 316; Strabo vi. 2. 5 (p. 272) ), and probably on the west side of the via Salaria, perhaps near the present Via Belisario. Festivals were celebrated here on 23rd April, the Vinalia (Ov. Fast. loc. cit.; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 94), and on 24th October (Fast. Praen., cf. Hulsen in DAP 2. xv. 326 sqq.). According to Strabo (loc. cit.), it was a copy of the temple at Mt. Eryx, and surrounded by a noteworthy porticus. This seems to have been a resort of questionable characters (Ov. locc. citt.; cf. CIL vi. 2274: sortilegus ab Venere Erucina)
