Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, TABULA VALERIA (search)
rser, Correspondence of Cicero i. 387). This interpretation is supported by a similar meaning, bank of Sestius, given to tabula Sestia in Cicero, pro Quinct. 25: pueros circum amicos dimittit, ipse suos necessarios ab atriis Liciniis et a faucibus macelli corrogat, ut ad tabulam Sextiam sibi adsint hora secunda postridie. (2) that it was a painting by Q. Fabius Pictor on the wall of the Curia Hostilia, which represented the victory of M. Valerius Messalla over Hiero and the Carthaginians in 264 B.C. (Plin. xxxv. 22: dignatio autem praecipua Romae increvit, ut existimo, a M'. Val. Maximo Messalla, qui princeps tabulam pictam p[icturam] Mayhoff. proelii quo Carthaginienses et Hieronem in Sicilia vicerat proposuit in latere curiae Hostiliae anno ab urbe condita CCCCLXXXX).

VORTUMNUS, AEDES a temple in the Vicus LORETI MAIORIS (q.v.) on the Aventine (Fast. Amit. Allif. Vail. ad Id. Aug., CIL i.a p. 244, 217, 240, 325; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, io6), in which was a portrait of M. Fulvius Flaccus in the robes of a triumphator (Fest. 209). As Vortumnus was a deity of Volsinii, and Fulvius celebrated a triumph over the Volsinians in 264 B.C. (CIL i.a p. 172), it is probable that the temple was built by him at that time for the god who had been brought to Rome (Prop. iv. 2. 3; WR 233). The day of dedication was 13th August. The temple was probably on the north-west part of the Aventine (HJ 162; Gilb. iii. 445-446).
