Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, FIDES, AEDES (search)
FIDES, AEDES a temple of Fides, afterwards known as Fides Publica (Val. Max.) or Fides Publica populi Romani (diplomata), on the Capitol. The establishment of the cult and the erection of a shrine (sacrarium, i(ero/v) is ascribed to Numa (Liv. i. 21. 4; Dionys. ii. 75; Plut. Numa 16), probably on the site of the later temple. This was dedicated--and presumably built-by A. Atilius Calatinus in 254 or 250 B.C. (Cic. de nat. deor. ii. 61, cf. Aist. de sacris aedibus 16), and restored and re-dedicated by M. Aemilius Scaurus in 115 B.C. (Cic. loc. cit.). The day of dedication was 1st October(Fast. Arv. Amit. Paul. ad Kal. Oct., CIL 2. p. 214,215,242; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921,114). This temple was in Capitolio (Fast. locc. citt.; Plin. NH xxxv. 100), and vicina Iovis optimi maximi (Cato ap. Cic. de off. iii. 104), and probably inside the area Capitolina, at its south-east corner near the porta Pandana Hulsen conjectures that the legend of Aracoeli (Chron. Min. iii. 428 ; cf. Mirabil. 13)

tpath was laid saxo quadrato from the gate to the templum Martis (Liv. x. 23. 12); three years later the whole road was paved with silex from the temple to Bovillae (ib. 47. 4), and in 189 B.C. the first mile, from the gate to the temple, was similarly treated (Liv. xxxviii. 28. 3). Its further course cannot be dealt with here. The description of the method of its construction in Procop. BG i. 14 is interesting; cf. Stat. Silv. iv. 3. 40-55. The earliest milestone we have belongs to about 250 B.C. (CIL i². 21), and others belong to Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian and Theodoric (CIL ix. 6075; x. 6812-6880; cf. p. 99 ; NS 1910, 292). For the road as a whole, see Canina, Via Appia, Rome 1853; T i. 35-71, 588-597; ix. 3-407; RE ii. 238-242; M61. 1903, 375-418; HJ 200, 209-213. For its curatores (who owe their institution to Claudius, with the other curatores of particular roads, see Senec. Apoc. I: Appiae viae curator est qua scis et Tiberium Caesarem et Augustum ad deos isse), see CIL ii. 192
