lium (Plin. NH xxxiv. 77). Cf. CIL i². 725, 730-732=vi. 30920-4 for dedicatory inscriptions set up at this temple. Whether vi. 30928 (with which go 30921, 30923; cf. ib. is. 732) belonged to it or to the CAPITOLIUM VETUS (q.v.) cannot be determined. Lightning frequently struck on the Capitol and did much damage, probably to the temple itself (Cic. Cat. iii. 19; de Div. i. 20; ii. 45; Cass. Dio xli. 14; xlii. 26; xlv. 17; xlvii. 10), and Augustus restored it at great expense, probably about 26 B.C., but without placing his own name upon it (Mon. Anc. iv. 9). It is thrice mentioned in the Acta Lud. Saec. (CIL vi. 32323. 9, 29, 70). Further injury by lightning is recorded in 9 B.C. (Cass. Dio Iv. I) and 56 A.D. (Tac. Ann. xiii. 24). In 69 A.D. the second temple, though ungarrisoned and unplundered, was burned when the Capitol was stormed by the Vitellians (Tac. Hist. iii. 71; Suet. Vit. 15; Cass. Diolxiv. 17; Stat. Silv. v. 3. 195-200; Hier. a. Abr. 2089), and rebuilt by Vespasian on it

IUPPITER TONANS, AEDES (templa, Martial; nao/s, Cass. Dio cit.): a temple on the Capitol, vowed by Augustus in 26 B.C. because of his narrow escape from being struck by lightning during his Cantabrian campaign, and dedicated ist September, 22 B.C. (Mon. Anc. iv. 5; Suet. Aug. 29; Mart. vii. 60. 2; Cass. Dio liv. 4; Fast. Amit. Ant. Arv. ad Kal. Sept., CIL i². p. 244, 248; vi. 2295). Cf. also CIL vi. 32323, 1. 31. The name Iuppiter Tonans (cf. Ov. Fast. ii. 69: Capitolinumque Tonantem; Mart. v. 16. 5: falcifer Tonans) was a translation of *zeu\s brontw=n (Cass. Dio loc. cit.), which form appears in a Latin transliteration in two inscriptions (CIL vi. 432, 2241). It was famous for its magnificence (Suet. Aug. 29: inter opera praecipua), with walls of solid marble (Plin. NH xxxvi. 50), and contained some notable works of art (Plin. NH xxxiv. 78, 79). Augustus visited this temple frequently, and on one occasion is said to have dreamed that Jupiter complained that the popularity of

and ta\ *se/pta): the building which Caesar planned to erect (Cic. ad Att. iv. 16. 14) in place of the earlier saepta (see OVILE), the voting precinct in the campus Martius. It was to be of marble, surrounded by a lofty porticus one mile in length. Whether actually begun by Caesar or not, it was partly built by Lepidus (stoai=s pe/ric u(po\ tou= *lepi/dou pro\s ta\s fuletika\s a)rxairesi/as (comitiis tributis) sunw|kodomhme/na, Cass. Dio liii. 23), and completed and dedicated by Agrippa in 26 B.C. Agrippa decorated the building with stone tablets and paintings, and gave the official designation of saepta Iulia. It seems to have been ordinarily called saepta only; once porticus saeptorum (Plin. NH xvi. 201); and once, in the third century, saepta Agrippiana (Hist. Aug. Alex. 26). It also continued to be known as ovile (Liv. xxvi. 22; Lucan ii. 197; Auson. Grat. act. iii. 13; Serv. Ecl. i. 33). In the saepta gladiatorial combats were exhibited by Augustus (Suet. Aug. 43; Cass. Dio lv.
