Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, IULIUS, DIVUS, AEDES (search)
IULIUS, DIVUS, AEDES (delubrum, Pl.; h(rw=|on, Cass. Dio;new/s, App.): the temple of the deified Julius Caesar, authorised by the triumvirs in 42 B.C. (Cass. Dio xlvii. 18), but apparently built by Augustus alone (Mon. Anc. iv. 2: aedem divi Iuli ... feci), and dedicated 18th August, 29 B.C. (Cass. Dio li. 22; Hemerol. Amit. Antiat. ad xv Kal. Sept.). The body of Caesar was burnt at the east end of the forum, in front of the Regia (Liv. ep. 116; Plut. Caes. 68), and here an altar was at once erected (bwmo/s, App. BC i. 4; ii. 148; iii. 2), and a column of Numidian marble twenty feet high inscribed Parenti Patriae (Suet. Caes. 85). Column and altar were soon removed by Dolabella Cf. also Cass. Dio xliv. 50. Caesar's veterans had some idea of replacing the altar (Cic. ad Fam. xi. 2, veteranos de reponenda ara cogitare), which may be identical with the ' bustum ' of Cic. Phil. i. 5, though in Jord. i. 2. 407, it is interpreted as a cenotaph behind the altar. Cf. CR 1899, 186; and fo

These all seem to refer to the same temple, presumably the same aedes Iovis Victoris that is mentioned as standing in Region X in the fourth century in the Notitia (Curiosum om. Victoris). If so, the temple was on the Palatine, but this depends solely on the Notitia (BC 1917, 84-92, where it is maintained to be of very early origin). Among the prodigies of 42 B.C. the striking of lightning e)s to\n tou= *nikai/ou *dio\s bwmo/nes is reported (Cass.

Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, LACUS SERVILIUS (search)
LACUS SERVILIUS a fountain in the forum, at the end of the vicus Iugarius and near the basilica Iulia (Fest. 290). The heads of the senators who were murdered in Sulla's proscription were fastened above and around this lacus (Cic. pro Rosc. Am. 89 ; Sen. de prov. iii. 7 ; Firm. Mat. astron. i. 7. 34). A structure in Anio tufa, destroyed by the restoration of the temple of Saturn in 42 B.C. ha. recently been identified with it (CR 1902, 94; JRS 1922 25-26; TF 75).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, NEPTUNUS, AEDES, DELUBRUM (search)
PTUNUS, AEDES, DELUBRUM a temple of Neptune in circo Flaminio mentioned on an inscription of the Flavian period (CIL vi. 8423: Abascanti Aug. lib. aedituo aedis Neptuni quae est in circo Flaminio), and without doubt by Pliny (NH xxxvi. 26), who states that a famous group by Scopas of Neptune, Thetis, Achilles, the Nereids and Tritons, Phorcus and his crew, sea-monsters, etc., was in delubro Cn. Domitii in circo Flaminio. A coin of Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus (RE v. 1331, No. 25), struck between 42 and 38 B.C. (Babelon, Monnaies i. 466, Domitia 20, BM. Rep. ii. 487. 93), represents a tetrastyle temple with the legend Nept. Cn. Domitius M. f. Imp. This indicates that the temple was vowed at least between 42 and 38, but it may not have been built before 32, when Domitius had been reconciled to Augustus and held the consulship. The group of Scopas he probably brought from Bithynia, his province. The day of dedication of this temple was Ist December (Fast. Amit. ad Kal. Dec., CIL i². p. 245,
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ROSTRA AUGUSTI (search)
ROSTRA AUGUSTI the rostra of the imperial period, situated at the north- west end of the forum. Caesar had decided on their removal, but his definite plan seems not to have been carried out, or at least the dedication not to have taken place until after 42 B.C. (Cass. Dio xliii. 49; cf. Diod. xii. 26; Ascon. ad Mil. 12). p. 37, § 3, of Kiessling and Scholl's edition. If we consider the point at which Caesar's body was burnt, it will seem natural that Mark Antony's oration should have been delivered at the opposite end of the forum (cf. Senec. Dial. iii. I. 3: a rostris usque ad arcum Fabianum to express the whole length of the forum). Augustus completed them (Pomponius, Dig. i. 2. 2) and he is represented seated on the rostra in a coin (Cohen, Aug. 529 =BM. Aug. 115=HC p. 75, fig. 32). A funeral oration in honour of Augustus was delivered from this rostra by Drusus (Suet. Aug. 100, where it is called vetera in contradistinction to the Rostra aedis divi lulii). Cassius Dio desc

resse ut aedes Saturni fieret eique rei L. Furium tribunum militum praefuisse). Which Furius is referred to is not known (RE vii. 316, 354-356; Peter, Hist. Rom. Reliq. is. 155), and this form of the tradition is probably valueless. It is, however, preferred by Beloch, Rem. Gesch. 12, 13. The dedication of the temple may safely be assigned to the beginning of the republic. In 174 B.C. a porticus was built along the clivus Capitolinus from the temple to the Capitolium (Liv. xli. 27. 7). In 42 B.C. the temple was rebuilt by L. Munatius Plancus (Suet. Aug. 29; CIL vi. 1316; x. 6087). It is mentioned incidentally in 16 A.D. (Tac. Ann. ii. 41), and at some time in the fourth century it was injured by fire and restored by vote of the senate, as recorded in the inscription on the architrave (CIL vi. 937). It is represented on three fragments of the Marble Plan (22, 23, 30), and is mentioned in Reg. (Not. Reg. VIII). Throughout the republic this temple contained the state treasury, the aera
