be understood. A second passage in Horace (Ep. i. I. 53-54: o cives cives quaerenda pecunia primum est; virtus post nummos: haec Ianus summus ab imo Prodocet) has complicated the matter. Summus and imus have been brought into connection with medius, and in support of the theory of three iani in the forum at different points, summus, medius and imus, some scholars cite a passage in Livy (xli. 27: forum porticibus tabernisque claudendum et Ianos tres faciendos) which states that in the year 174 B.C. the magistrates erected three iani in some colony, presumably in imitation of conditions in the forum at Rome. No hint of any such connection of summus and imus with medius is given by the scholiasts (Porphyr.:ad ianos eos qui sunt in regione basilicae Pauli feneratores consistunt... Unus enim illic ianus in summo alius in imo est quos haec inducit monere; Acron: duo Iani ante basilicam Pauli steterunt ubi locus erat faeneratorum. Ianus dicebatur locus in quo solebant convenire feneratores)
