MINERVA, TEMPLUM * Among the buildings attributed to Domitian (Chron. 146) is a templum Castorum et Minervae, and the same designation is employed in the Regionary Catalogue (Cur. Reg. VIII, om. Not.). This would indicate either one structure, or two near together, an inference that is supported by the discovery of part of the statue of Minerva near the lacus Iuturnae (NS 1901, I 14, fig. 73). On the tabulae honestae missionis after 89 A.D. (CIL iii. Suppl. pp. 1965-2005, 2035), Cf. ib. v. 4056, 4091. it is stated that the originals were placed in muro post templum divi Aug. ad Minervam, and the same juxtaposition of these two temples is found in Martial (iv. 53. 1-2: Hunc, quem saepe vides intra penetralia nostrae / Palladis et templi limina, Cosme, novi). The shrine of Minerva should, then, be situated between the temple of Augustus and the temple of Castor, and many scholars have accepted Hulsen's theory which identifies it with the large court (19 by 21 metres) which served
