QUIRINUS, AEDES (templum, Cic. Fest. Cur.; templa, Ovid; nao/s, Cass. Dio): a temple on the Quirinal hill, to which it gave the name (Fest. 255), said to have been vowed by L. Papirius Cursor when dictator in 325 B.C., and dedicated in 293 by his son, who adorned it with a profusion of spoils (Liv. x. 46. 7; Plin. NH vii. 213). After the Romulus legend was developed and he was identified with Quirinus, the building of the temple was said to have been commanded by Romulus when he appeared to Proculus Julius (Cic. de re pub. ii. 20; de leg. i. 3; Ov. Fast. ii. 511 de vir. ill. 2. 14). The record of a session of the senate held in aede Quirini in 435 B.C. (Liv. iv. 21. 9) is regarded as fictitious, but in any case the temple was one of the oldest in Rome (Plin. NH xv. 120: inter antiquissima delubra habetur Quirini). Whether it stood on the site of an earlier ara (see above) cannot be determined. In front of it grew two myrtle trees, called patricia and plebeia, of which the former f
nate retained its power unimpaired, but withered away during the Social war, while the other became healthy and vigorous (Plin. loc. cit.). In 206 B.C. the temple was struck by lightning (Liv. xxviii. II. 4), and again in 49 when it was much injured if not almost destroyed (Cass. Dio xli. 14. 3). It must have been repaired almost at once, for the senate erected in it in 45 a statue to Caesar as the *qeo\s a)ni/khtos (Cass. Dio xliii. 45. 3). A final restoration was completed by Augustus in 16 B.C. (Mon. Anc. iv. 5; vi. 32; Cass. Dio liv. 19. 4). The day of dedication of the original temple was not 29th June, the later date (Ov. Fast. vi. 795-796; Fast. Venus. ad in Kal. Mart., CIL i. p. 212, 250; Wissowa, Ges. Abh. 144-146, 268-270), but 17th February. Mommsen's view (CIL ia. p. 310) has been proved to be correct by the discovery of the pre-Caesarian calendar at Antium, where we find the Quirinalia entered on 17th February (NS 1921, 87). The 29th of June, on the other hand, was only

f the Arvales (CIL i². p. 326), records another festival of Quirinus on 23rd August, and (apparently; it is fragmentary at that point) of Hora Quirini also (NS 1921, 109). The temple was of the Doric order, dipteral-octostyle, with a pronaos, and a porch in the rear. It had seventy-six columns, two rows of fifteen each on the sides, and a double row of eight at each end, counting those on the sides again, and was surrounded by a porticus (Vitr. iii. 2. 7; Mart. xi. I. 9). A relief of the second century, Others (HF 1418; Sieveldng in Festschrift fir P. Arndt, 136) assign it to the Flavian period. found within the area of the baths of Diocletian, represents the facade of this temple as that of a Doric tetrastyle, with Romulus and Remus taking the auspices on the pediment (Mitt. 1904, 27-29, 157-158; SScR i. 72-74; PT 229). Occasional references to it are found in literature (Vitr. vii. 9. 4; Liv. viii. 20. 8; Plut. Cam. 20; cf. CIL vi. 9975), down to the fourth century (Cur. Reg. VI, om

Its site is determined by the discovery of inscriptions to be on the north side of the Alta Semita and probably in the eastern part of the present gardens of the royal palace, near the edge of the hill (CIL vi. 475, 565 565 = i2. 803; ILS 3141. ; BC 1889, 336-339, 379-391; 1914, 372-373; RhM 1894, 405-407; HJ 409-410; for the temple in general, see HJ 407-410; Rosch. iv. 14-16; Gilb. i. 280; iii. 320; Hermes 1891, 137-144=Wissowa, Ges.
