he south. On the other hand, we are told that in 304 B.C. Cn. Flavius erected a small bronze shrine (aedicula) to CONCORDIA (q.v.) on the Graecostasis quae tunc supra Comitium erat (Plin. NH xxxiii. 19), and this 'aedes ' is also spoken of as 'in area Volcani ' (Liv. ix. 46)-a statement that may mean that the Graecostasis had been moved or had ceased to exist at all in Pliny's day. About 30 B.C. sacrifices were offered to Luna 'in Graecostasi' (Fast. Pinc., CIL i². p. 219), and for the years 137, 130, 124 B.C., it is recorded that it rained blood or milk on the Graecostasis (Obseq. de prod. 24, 28, 31). The Graecostasis was therefore an open platform between the comitium and the forum, on the site afterwards occupied by the arch of Severus, and eastwards. Cf. JRS 1922, II, 25, where Van Deman places it under and north of the rostra of Augustus. Hiilsen (HC. pl. v.) places it conjecturally to the west of the Lapis Niger (TF 64), but the pavement here is probably the pavement of the Su
the comitium, which served as a sort of tribunal for ambassadors from foreign states, especially Greeks (Varro, LL v. 155). It was near the curia (Cic. ad Q. Fr. ii. I. 3), on the west of the rostra, and the relative position of these structures is determined by the statement of Pliny (NH vii. 212) that the accensus of the consuls proclaimed the hour of noon when, from the curia, he saw the sun between the rostra and Graecostasis-that is, in the south.
