Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, CIRCUS MAXIMUS (search)
(Varro, LL vi. 20; Plut. Rom. 14). To the Tarquins tradition ascribed the beginnings of the circus and the assignment of definite places or curiae to senate and knights where they could erect wooden platforms on supports (fori), from which to view the games, either to Priscus (Liv. i. 35. 8; Dionys. iii. 68. 1) or Superbus (Liv. i. 56. 2; Dionys. iv. 44. 1; de vir. ill. 8 ;' Foros ' is a conjecture: the text is corrupt. cf. Chron. 145), but the first definite statement is that of Livy for 329 B.C. (viii. 20. 1: carceres eo anno in circo primum statuti), which makes it plain that there had been nothing permanent before that date. These carceres were probably of wood, for a century later they were painted (Enn. ap. Cic. de div. i. 108:omnes avidi spectant ad carceris oras quam mox emittat pictis e faucibus currus). For further mention of the fori publici, see Liv. xxix. 37 (204 B.C.); CIL i 2. 809 (first century B.C.). It is probable that after the carceres the next permanent part of

nerally ascribed to the last Tarquin, although it was dedicated by Sp. Postumius many years later, 5th June, 466 B.C. (Dionys. ix. 60; Ov. Fast. vi. 213; Fast. Ven. ad Non. Iun., CIL i². p. 220, 319; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 98). It contained a bronze statue of Tanaquil, her distaff and spindle (Plut. q. Rom. 30; Plin. NH viii. 194), and a wooden shield covered with ox-hide, which was a memorial of the league between Rome and Gabii (Dionys. iv. 58), and, after the destruction of Privernum in 329 B.C., bronze wheels made of the proceeds of the confiscated property of Vitruvius (Liv. viii. 20. 8). Besides aedes (Grk. i(ero\n), the temple was called templum (Pliny), fanum (Tert.) and sacellum (Livy). Although small aedes were sometimes called sacella, the use of this term by Livy may perhaps be explained on the hypothesis that the shrine of this deity was open to the sky (cf. Varro v. 66; Becker, Top. 576). It stood on the Collis Mucialis (p. 437), near and probably a little north of the p
