EQUUS TREMULI an equestrian statue of Q. Marcius Tremulus, consul in 306 B.C., erected in front of the temple of Castor and Pollux to commemorate his victory over the Hernici (Liv. ix. 43. 22). It was still standing in Cicero's day (Phil. vi. 13), but had disappeared before the time of Pliny (NH xxxiv. 23). A concrete base in front of the temple of Divus Iulius has been believed to be that of this statue (NS 1904, 106; CR 1904, 330; BC 1904, 178-179 ; Atti 583, 584), but it certainly belongs to the Augustan period (Mitt. 1905, 73, 74; P1. 260, 261; HC 155). To suppose either that so comparatively unimportant a monument would have been restored and placed in front of the new temple, or that, having been restored, it would so soon have disappeared, is almost impossible; and it is far more natural to attribute it to a statue of Caesar himself.
