Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ARCUS M. AURELII (search)
ARCUS M. AURELII an arch erected in commemoration of the victory of Marcus Aurelius over the Germans and Sarmatians in 176 A.D., according to an inscription (CIL vi. 1014) that was seen and copied by the compiler of the Einsiedeln Itinerary. This arch probably spanned the CLIVUS ARGENTARIUS (q.v.) at its junction with the via Lata, and is that referred to in a forged bull The description of the boundaries of the parish of SS. Apostoli, which the bull purports to give, is taken from a bull of Lucius III of 1183 (Kehr, Italia Pontificia i. 72-73). of John III (Jord. ii. 669) as arcus Argentariorum, and in the Mirabilia (ch. 5) as arcus Panis Aurei in Capitolio (PBS iii. 252-253 ; Jord. i. 2. 214).

(1910) 229-250. are in the Palazzo dei Conservatori (Cons. Cat. Scala ii. 4, 7, 10), and belong to an arch erected in 176 A.D. to commemorate the victories of M. Aurelius in the Sarmatian and German wars. They depict the emperor entering Rome, engaging in sacrifice, receiving an address from his soldiers, etc. To the Constantinian period belong: the reliefs on the pedestals of the eight columns, representing victories, legionaries and captives, the low frieze above the side arches and at the ends, the two round medallions at the ends, representing the setting of the moon and the rising of the sun (Strong, Sculpture
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, IUPPITER HELIOPOLITANUS, TEMPLUM (search)
TANUS, TEMPLUM This sanctuary was erected on the Janiculum, on the site of the LUCUS FURRINAE (q.v.), probably in the latter half of the first century A.D. Scanty traces of it have been found. More considerable remains of an edifice erected in 176 A.D. were also discovered, but only about one quarter of it has been cleared. It consisted, like the first, of an open square temenos, oriented on the points of the compass, and divided into four equal compartments by two transverse lines of amphorae (IG xiv. 1512; CIL vi. 32316), where he is mentioned as ki/stiber and asdei/pnois krei/vas polla\ met) eu)frosu/nhs.

And, agreeably to this, one of the rec
