Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, AREA CAPITOLINA (search)
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)

Flaminio, see above), one referring to an occurrence of 9 A.D. (Cass. 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
