MENS, AEDES (templum, Varro) : a temple on the Capitol, probably within the area Capitolina, vowed by the praetor, T. Otacilius Crassus, in 217 B.C. after the defeat at Lake Trasimene, according to the instructions of the Sibylline books (Liv. xxii. 9. 10, 10. 10; Ov. Fast. vi. 241-246), at the same time with the temple of Venus Erucina. In 215 both temples were dedicated by duoviri appointed for the purpose, that of Venus by Fabius Maximus, and that of Mens by Otacilius (Liv. xxiii. 31. 9, 32. 20). The two temples were separated by an open drain (Liv. xxiii. 31. 9: uno canali discretae; cf. Serv. Georg. iv. 265). The temple of Mens seems to have been restored by M. Aemilius Scaurus, consul in 115 B.C., either at that time (WR 313 ; RE i. 587) or after his campaign against the Cimbri in 107 (Cic. de nat. deor. ii. 61 ; Plut. de fort.
