388 B.C.At the close of this year, in Athens Pyrgion was archon and in Rome four military tribunes took over the consular magistracy, Lucius Lucretius, Servius Sulpicius, Gaius Aemilius, and Gaius Rufus,Gaius Rufus is deleted by most editors and is probably a mistake. and the Ninety-eighth Olympiad was celebrated, that in which Sosippus of Athens was the victor.In the "stadion". When these men had entered office, Dionysius, the lord of the Syracusans, advanced with his army to Hipponium, removed its inhabitants to Syracuse, razed the city to the ground, and apportioned its territory to the Locrians. For he was continuously set upon doing the Locrians favours for the marriage they had agreed to, whereas he studied revenge upon the Rhegians for their affront with respect to the offer of kinship. For on the occasion when he sent ambassadors to them to ask them to grant him in marriage a maiden of their city, the Rhegians replied to the a

meter sit opposite each other, while Apollo and Artemis stand opposite each other. Here too have been dedicated Leto, Fortune, Dionysus and a winged Victory. I cannot say who the artists were, but these figures too are in my opinion very ancient. The figures I have enumerated are of ivory and gold, but at a later date other images were dedicated in the Heraeum, including a marble Hermes carrying the baby Dionysus, a work of Praxiteles, and a bronze Aphrodite made by Cleon of Sicyon.circa 388 B.C. The master of this Cleon, called Antiphanes, was a pupil of Periclytus, who himself was a pupil of Polycleitus of Argos. A nude gilded child is seated before Aphrodite, a work fashioned by Boethus of Calchedon. There were also brought hither from what is called the Philippeum other images of gold and ivory, Eurydice the wife of Aridaeus and Olympias the wife of Philip. There is also a chest made of cedar, with figures on it, some of ivory, some of gold, others carved out of the cedar-wood

When the winter had passed, at the very388 B.C. beginning of spring Agesilaus again called out the ban against the Acarnanians, in accordance with his promise to the Achaeans. But the Acarnanians, learning of this and thinking that inasmuch as their cities were in the interior they would be just as truly besieged by the people whoo lead the ban, and when the sacrifices which he offered at the frontier proved favourable, he went to Olympia and consulted the oracle of the god, asking whether388 B.C. it would be consistent with piety if he did not acknowledge the holy truce claimed by the Argives; for, he urged, it was not when the appointed time came, but wh killed by being struck, others by the shock. After this, desiring to fortify a garrison post at the entrance to the Argive country which leads past Mount Celusa,388 B.C. he offered sacrifice; and the livers of the victims were found to be lacking a lobe. When this happened, he led his army away and disbanded it, having inflicted

The Romans took it from the Bruttii, who were in possession of it at a subsequent period, and changed the name into Vibo-Valentia.B. C. 193. And because the meadows in its vicinity are luxuriant and full of flowers, it is supposed that Proserpine came over from Sicily to gather them, and from thence the custom among women of this city, to gather flowers and plait garlands, prevailed to such an extent, that they now think it shameful to wear purchased garlands at the festivals.There was

d a treaty with the Romans, upon what terms is not known, but they were doubtless liberal (vii. xix. 4) The arms of Rome were then directed against the Aequi, who had been her enemies of old, but for many years past had remained quiet,Since 388 B.C. (vi. iv. 8). under colour of a peace which they observed but treacherously. The reason for making war on them was as follows: before the overthrow of the Hernici they had repeatedly joined with them in sending assistance to the Samnites,Chiles from the enemy's camp. The army of the Aequi, who for many years had made no war on their own account,i.e. while Aequians had volunteered for service in other armies, they had engaged in no war as a nation —at any rate with Rome —since 388 B.C. (vi. iv. 8). like a hastily levied militia, under no definite commanders and subject to no supreme authority, were in a state of panic. some were for offering battle, others for defending the camp.

space in front of and around the temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus on the south summit of the Capitoline (Suet. Cal. 22, 34; Gell. ii. 10. 2; Sidon. Ep. i. 7. 8; Vell. ii. 3. 2; Liv. xxv. 3. 14: area Capitolii), made by building retaining walls and substructures round the edge of the hill and levelling off the surface enclosed. The area was therefore in effect a built-up platform, part of which at least was contemporaneous with the foundations of the temple. It was enlarged in 388 B.C., and was regarded as a notable monument even at the beginning of the empire (Liv. vi. 4. 11). The extent of the area has been a matter of dispute, and some scholars have maintained that it did not extend more than about 15-16 metres from the sides of the temple (Richter, Beitrage zur rom. Top. ii. 24-25 ; Hermes, 1883, 115-118; cf. Gilb. iii. 398-399; Aust in Roscher ii. 709), but the prevailing view at present is that it covered practically all of the Capitolium (Hulsen, Festschrift fur

in the road leading to it, the CLIVUS MARTIS (q.v.) (Ov. Fast. vi. 191-192). The site is 2 kilometres from the porta Capena and just outside the porta Appia of the Aurelian wall. (The first milestone was situated just inside this gate, LS iii. ii.) Beside it was a grove (Schol. Iuv. i. 7: lucus Martis qui Romae est in Appia in quo solebant recitare poetae; cf. ANTRUM CYCLOPIS; HJ 208). The date of the foundation of this temple is not known, unless, as seems probable, Livy's statement under 388 B.C. (vi. 5. 8: eo anno aedes Martis Gallico bello vota dedicata est a T. Quinctio duumviro sacris Faciendis) refers to this temple and not to that in the campus Martius (see MARS, ARA). The day of dedication was 1st June (Ov. Fast. vi. 19 ; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 97, Marti in CI[ivo]). The temple is mentioned frequently, and the district around it, even as far as the Almo, was known as ad Martis (Liv. x. 23. 12, 47. 4; xxxviii. 28. 3; Suet. Terent. 5; Cic. ad Q. F. iii. 7; Rostowzew, 496, 497)

Dio Ivi. 24. 3: 8 o(/ te ga\r tou= )/*arews nao\s o( e)n tw=| pedi/w| au)tou= w)/n e)kepaupwnh/qh), and the other a little later (Consol. ad Liv. 231: sed Mavors templo vicinus et accola campi). A line in Ovid (Fast. ii. 859-60: ex vero positum permansit Equiria nomen / qua deus in campo prospicit ipse suo) also seems to refer to a statue of the god looking out from a shrine. Whether Livy's statement (vi. 5. 8: eo anno (388 B.C.) aedes Martis Gallico bello vota dedicata est) refers to such a temple or to the temple of Mars outside the porta Capena is uncertain. There are two views as to the relation and site of altar and temple- one that the original ara was situated just east of the site of the existing Pantheon, in the Via del Seminario, and that a shrine was afterwards built close to it, making one cult centre; the other that the ara was near the present Piazza del Gesu, and the temple much further north, perhap
