IUNO SOSPITA (2) a temple which stood on the Palatine, if the traditional reading of Ovid (Fast. ii. 55-59) be preserved: Principio mensis Phrygiae contermina Matris Sospita delubris dicitur aucta novis. Nunc ubi sint illis quae sunt sacrata Kalendis Templa deae ? longa procubuere die. Nothing further is known of such a temple, and there is some difficulty in explaining why a cult from Lanuvium was admitted within the pomerium at a fairly early date. Ovid may have confused the Magna Mater with the MATER MATUTA (q.v.), and may be referring in this passage to luno Sospita in the forum Holitorium. If this be so, however, that temple could hardly have been restored in 90 B.C., or be that of which the ruins are beneath S. Nicola in Carcere, if it had vanished so completely in Ovid's time (WR 188; BC 1914, 97; Rosch. ii. 596; HJ 46: Gilb. i. 229; iii. 430).
