s that the shrine was standing in the second century. An inscription (CIL vi. 524) found on the Caelian may also refer to it, and a statue of Minerva in alabaster found near SS. Quattro Coronati, now in the Museo delle Terme, is attributed to it (NS 1926, 61). Ovid gives four explanations (Fast. iii. 839-848) of the epithet Capta, of which only one has any probability (843-844: an quia perdomitis ad nos captiva Faliscis I venit ? et hoc ipsum littera prisca docet). If this be true, the shrine was erected after the destruction of Falerii in 241 B.C. The terms parva delubra and Minervium should indicate that this shrine was not an aedes sacra but only a sacellum. If so, Ovid's statement (see above) that the day of dedication was 19th March is an error, due to the confusion of this sacellum-which would have no natale marked on the calendar-with the temple of Minerva on the Aventine (HJ 226-227; Rosch. ii. 2984-2985; WR 253; Gilb. ii. 233-235, and other literature cited in these places).

Inst. 1849, 377). If this is accepted as evidence, it shows that the shrine was standing in the second century.
