COLUMNA MAENIA a column erected in 338 B.C. in honour of C. Maenius, the victor in the naval battle at Antium (Plin. NH xxxiv. 20), which stood near the basilica Porcia and the Carcer (Plin. NH vii. 212; Cic. div. in Caec. 50; pro Sest. 18 and schol. Bob. ad loc.; Plut. Cato min. 5). Another tradition, probably false, attributed the column to a later Maenius who, when he sold his house to Cato the Censor to make room for the basilica Porcia, reserved one column that he might use it as a support for the platform from which to view the games in the forum (Asc. in Cic. div. in Caec. 50, p. 120, Or.; Porphyr. ad Hor. Sat. i. 3. 21; BC 1914, 106). This column was standing in the fourth century (Sym. Ep. v. 54. 3; Jord. i. 2. 345; Mitt. 1893, 84, 92; O'Connor, Bull. Univ. Wisconsin iii. 188-192; Gilb. iii. 212-213; DR 469, 470).
