Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, IUPPITER STATOR, AEDES (search)
(templum, i(epo/v): a temple vowed, according to tradition (BC 1917, 79-84), by Romulus at the critical moment in the battle between the Romans and the Sabines when the former had been driven across the forum valley to the porta Mugonia (Liv. i. 12. 3-6; ps. Cic. orat. pr. quam in exilium iret 24; Ov. Fast. vi. 794; Dionys. ii. 50; Flor. i. I. 13; de vir. ill. 2. 8). The epithet stator appears in Greek as o)pqw/sios (Dionys.) and sth/sios (App. Plut.). This temple was never built, but in 294 B.C. the consul, M. Atilius Regulus, made a similar vow under similar circumstances in a battle with the Samnites, and erected the temple immediately afterwards (Liv. x. 36. II, 37. 15). Livy explains that no actual building had been put up by Romulus, but fanum tantum, id est locus templo effatus-an attempt to reconcile fact with what had evidently become the popular tradition (Cic. Cat. i. 33 ; ps. Cic. loc. cit.). Its site is variously indicated-in Palatii radice, ps. Cic.; ante Palatini ora
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, VICTORIA, AEDES (search)
VICTORIA, AEDES ´╝łte/menos, Dionys.) : * a temple on the Palatine hill, ascribed by tradition to Evander (Dionys. i. 32. 5), but actually built by L. Postumius Megellus out of fines levied by him during his aedileship, dedicated by him on 1st August (Fast. Praen. ad Kal. Aug., EE ix. No. 740; NS 1897, 421; Ant. ap. NS 1921, 104) when consul in 294 B.C. (Liv. x. 33. 9). During the years 204-191, while the temple of the Magna Mater was being built, the sacred stone of that goddess was kept in the temple of Victoria (Liv. xxix. 14. 13). Near it Cato afterwards built a shrine of Victoria Virgo (Liv. xxxv. 9. 6). There is no record of any restoration of this temple (AJA 1905, 438-440; Mem. Am. Acad. ii. 61), and its exact site is still uncertain. See CJ 1920, 297, where Chase states that Boni identified this temple with foundations found near the arch of Titus. It was doubtless on the CLIVUS VICTORIAE (q.v.), and remains of two dedicatory inscriptions (CIL vi. 31059=12. 805 ; 31060), fou
