C. Suetonius Tranquillus, Divus Vespasianus (ed. Alexander Thomson), chapter 9 (search)
He likewise erected several new public buildings, namely the temple of PeaceThe temple of Peace, erected A. D. 71, on the conclusion of the wars with the Germans and the Jews, was the largest temple in Rome. Vespasian and Titus deposited in it the sacred vessels and other spoils which were carried in their triumph after the conquest of Jerusalem. They were consumed, and the temple much damaged, if not destroyed, by fire, towards the end of the reign of Commodus, in the year 191. It stood in the Forum, where some ruins on a prodigious scale, still remaining, were traditionally considered to be those of the Temple of Peace, until Piranesi contended that they are part of Nero's Golden House. Others suppose that they are the remains of a Basilica. A beautiful fluted Corinthian column, forty-seven feet high, which was removed from this spot, and now stands before the church of S. Maria Maggiore, gives a great idea of the splendour of the original structure. near the forum, that of Claudius

GENS IULIA, ARA an altar on the Capitoline, presumably A diploma published in JRS 1926, 95-101, states that the original was ' fixa Romae in Capitolio in basi Pompi[li regis ad] aram gentis Iuliae,' which makes this presumption a certainty. in the AREA CAPITOLINA (q.v.). Copies of a number of the diplomata of honourably discharged soldiers, belonging to the years after 71 A.D., state that the originals were fastened to this altar (CIL iii. pp. 847-851, Suppl. pp. 1958, 1959, 2034; DE i. 604 ; Jord. i. 2. 56), and it is no doubt this altar that is referred to in a fragment of the Acta Fratrum Arvalium of uncertain date (CIL vi. 2035, 1. 4).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PAX, TEMPLUM (search)
PAX, TEMPLUM * (aedes, Vict.;*ei)rh/nhs new/s, Procop.; *ei)rhnai=on, Cass. Dio lxxii.;te/menos *ei)rh/nhs , other Greek writers): the temple of Peace which was begun by Vespasian after the capture of Jerusalem in 71 A.D., and dedicated in 75 (Suet. Vesp. 9; Joseph. b. Iud. vii. 5. 7 (158) ; Cass. Dio lxv. 15. ; Aur. Vict. Caes. 9. 7; Ep. 9. 8). It stood in the middle of the forum Pacis, north of the basilica Aemilia (Mart. i. 2. 8), probably at the junction of the modern Vie Alessandrina and dei Pozzi. Statius seems to ascribe the completion of this temple to Domitian (Silv. iv. 3. 17; cf. iv. I. 13), but this emperor's claim may have had little foundation (cf. Suet. Dom. 5). Within the temple, or attached closely to it, was a library, bibliotheca Pacis (Gell. v. 21. 9; xvi. 8. 2; Boyd, 16-17, 36-37). In it were placed many of the treasures brought by Vespasian from Jerusalem, as well as famous works of Greek artists (Joseph. b. Iud. vii. 5. 7; Plin. NH xii. 94; xxxiv. 84; xxxv

ian wall, leaving out such projections as that made by the wall south of the baths of Caracalla, (e) would naturally fall into it, and (f) and (h) might be supposed to have been moved somewhat from their proper places. The line on the western side of the city is, however, entirely uncertain, for (g) is probably near its original position, and the Iseum and the porticus Octaviae were outside the pomerium in the time of Tiberius (Cass. Dio lv. 8), and when Vespasian celebrated his triumph in 71 A.D. (Josephus, Bell. Iud. vii. 5. 4 (123 sqq.). Vespasian also extended the pomerium. Permission was given him in the lex de imperio (CIL vi. 930, 14-16), and three inscribed cippi of his line have been found (e, f, g in text fig. 4): (i) CIL vi. 31538 a; BC 1882, 154, found about 1540-1550 outside the porta Pinciana with the number xxxi. The original is lost and its exact position cannot now be determined, but it was probably about 150 metres in a west-north-west direction from the gate (Herme

Aelia'nus, Plautius offered up the prayer as pontifex, when the first stone of the new Capitol was laid in A. D. 71. (Tac. Hist. 4.53.) We learn from an inscription (Gruter, p.453; Orelli, n. 750), that his full name was Ti. Plautius Silvanus Aelianus, that he held many important military commands, and that he was twice consul. His first consulship was in A. D. 47; the date of his second is unknown.

Briga'nticus, Ju'lius was born among the Batavi, and was the son of the sister of Civilis, who hated and was in turn hated by his nephew. Briganticus commanded a squadron of cavalry, with which he first revolted to Caecina, the general of Vitellius, and afterwards to Vespasian, in A. D. 70. He served under Cerialis in Germany against his uncle Civilis, and fell in battle in this war, A. D. 71. (Tac. Hist. 2.22, 4.70, 5.21.)
generals. He commanded an advanced party of cavalry, and is charged, in common with the other generals, with not advancing upon Rome quickly enough. He suffered a defeat in a skirmish beneath the walls of Rome. In the following year, he was sent to the Rhine, to suppress the revolt of Civilis, in which he was completely successful. [CIVILIS.] While holding this command, he was solicited by Domitian to give up to him his army. Domitian's object was partly to gain reputation by finishing the victory which Cerealis had secured, but chiefly to seize the empire. Cerealis, however, laughed off the request, as being the foolish fancy of a boy. (Tac. Hist. 3.59, 78, 79, 4.86.) In the following year (A. D. 71), he was sent as consular legate to the government of Britain, in which he was active and successful. He conquered a great part of the Brigantes, and called out the talents of Agricola. (Tac. Agr. 8, 17.) As a commander he was energetic, but rash. (See especially Tac. Hist. 4.71.) [P.S]
