acrob. i. 16. 15; Serv. Aen. viii. 1), and the trumpet blown (Varro vi. 92). Titus Tatius is said to have lived on the arx (Solin. i. 21), and also M. Manlius Capitolinus, whose house was destroyed in 384 B.C., when the senate decreed that henceforth no patrician should dwell on the arx or Capitolium (Liv. v. 47. 8; vi. 20. 13). On the site of this house, Camillus erected the temple of IUNO MONETA (q.v.) in 344 B.C. One other temple certainly stood on the arx, that of Concord dedicated in 217 B.C., and possibly two others, of VEIOVIS and HONOS ET VIRTUS (qq.v.). There is no record of any other public buildings on the arx, but on its north-east corner was the AUGURACULUM (q.v.), a grassy open space where the augurs took their observations. The original topography of the arx is quite uncertain; for the construction of the church and cloisters of S. Maria in Aracoeli in the ninth century changed completely all previous conditions (cf. Rodocanachi, Le Capitole 237-242). When the founda
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, CONCORDIA, AEDES (search)
CONCORDIA, AEDES a temple to Concord on the arx, vowed probably by the praetor L. Manlius in 218 B.C. after he had quelled a mutiny among his troops in Cisalpine Gaul (Liv. xxii. 33. 7; cf. xxvi. 23. 4). It was begun in 217 and dedicated on 5th February, 216 (Liv. xxiii. 21. 7; Hemerol. Praen. ad Non. Feb., Concordiae in Arce ; For the discovery of this fragment of the Fasti Praenestini, see DAP 2. xv. 330. CIL i 2. p. 233, 309; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 86, Concordiae in Capitolio; Hermes 1875, 288; Jord. i. 2. 112). It was probably on the east side of the arx, and overlooked the great temple of Concord below.
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, MENS, AEDES (search)
MENS, AEDES (templum, Varro) : a temple on the Capitol, probably within the area Capitolina, vowed by the praetor, T. Otacilius Crassus, in 217 B.C. after the defeat at Lake Trasimene, according to the instructions of the Sibylline books (Liv. xxii. 9. 10, 10. 10; Ov. Fast. vi. 241-246), at the same time with the temple of Venus Erucina. In 215 both temples were dedicated by duoviri appointed for the purpose, that of Venus by Fabius Maximus, and that of Mens by Otacilius (Liv. xxiii. 31. 9, 32. 20). The two temples were separated by an open drain (Liv. xxiii. 31. 9: uno canali discretae; cf. Serv. Georg. iv. 265). The temple of Mens seems to have been restored by M. Aemilius Scaurus, consul in 115 B.C., either at that time (WR 313 ; RE i. 587) or after his campaign against the Cimbri in 107 (Cic. de nat. deor. ii. 61 ; Plut. de fort.

Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, VENUS ERUCINA, AEDES (search)
VENUS ERUCINA, AEDES a temple on the Capitoline, probably within the area Capitolina, which, together with the temple of MENS (q.v.), was vowed by the dictator Q. Fabius Maximus, in accordance with the instructions of the Sibylline books, after the defeat at Lake Trasumenus in 217 B.C. (Liv. xxii. 9. 10, 10. 10), and dedicated by Fabius as duovir in 215 (Liv. xxiii. 30. 13, 31. 9). The temples of Venus and Mens were separated by a sewer (Liv. xxiii. 31. 9; cf. Varro ap. Philogyr. ad Georg. iv. 265). It is altogether probable that this is the temple known during the empire as aedes Capitolina Veneris, in which Livia dedicated a statue of an infant son of Germanicus (Suet. Cal. 7), and Galba a necklace of precious stones (Suet. Galba 18; Jord. i. 2. 42; Gilb. 111. 101; cf. however, Mommsen, CIL i². p. 331 ; Becker, Top. 404).
