Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ANIO VETUS (search)
ANIO VETUS *an aqueduct commenced in 272 B.C., From a new fragment of the Fasti Consulares (NS 1925, 376-381) we learn that the name of the colleague of M'. Curius Dentatus (who made the contract for the building of the aqueduct) in the censorship of 272 B.C. was ( ... ) Papirius Praetextatus (and not L. Papirius Cursor, as he is wrongly called in Frontinus) and that he died during his term of office.

Papirius Cursor, as he is wrongly called in Frontinus) and that he died during his term of office. As the work was not finished post biennium, Curius and one Fulvius Flaccus were appointed as duumviri to complete it. Within five days Curius died-no doubt late in 270 or early in 269 B.C., for fresh censors were appointed in the latter year, and the work was completed by Fulvius alone. Cf. also BC 1925, 250-252. which took its supply from the river Anio, at a point opposite Vicovaro, the ancient Varia, 8 miles from Tibur (Plin.

CONSUS, AEDES a temple of Consus on the Aventine (Fast. Vall. ad xii Kal. Sept.; Amit. ad prid. Id. Dec.), probably vowed or built by L. Papirius Cursor in 272 B.C. on the occasion of his triumph. This may fairly be inferred from the fact that Papirius was painted on the walls in the robes of a triumphator Urlichs, Malerei vor Caesar, 7, 8. (Fest. 209: eius rei argumentum est. . pictum in AEDE VERTUMNI (q.v.) et Consi quarum in altera M. Fulvius Flaccus, in altera T. Papirius Cursor triumphantes ita picti sunt). In the Fasti Vallenses (cf. CIL i 2. p. 240) the day of dedication is given as 21st August; in the Fasti Amiternini (CIL i 2. p. 245) as 12th December; a discrepancy that may perhaps be explained by supposing that the temple had been restored by Augustus after 7 B.C. (CIL i 2. p. 326; WR 167; Aust. de aed. sac. 14, 43). It is probable that this temple was near that of Vortumnus in the VICUS LORETI MAIORIS (q.v.) on the north-west part of the Aventine (HJ 163; Merlin 104,
