Dio xliii. 45; App. BC i. 16; Plin. NH xxxiv. 22). The statues of Romulus and Tatius were togatae sine tunicis, sine anulis; those of Numa,'Cf. GENS IULIA, ARA. Servius Tullius and Tarquinius Priscus had rings on their fingers and were probably of later date (Plin. NH xxxiii. 9-10; xxxiv. 23; Ascon. Scaur. fin.). All of them were probably set up between 350 and 150 B.C. (Gilb. i. 24-25 ; Jord. i. I. 57-58; Rodocanachi, Le Capitole 46).
