using to differentiate Semo Sancus from Dius Fidius: and Warde Fowler (Roman Festivals, 135-142) agrees. or its variants, Semo Sancus Fidius, Deus or Dius Fidius (Ov. Fast. vi. 213-216; Varro, LL v. 52, 66). This Sabine cult is said to have been introduced into Rome by Titus Tatius (Tert. ad nat. ii. g; Ov. Fast. vi. 217-218; Prop. iv. 9. 74), but the construction of the temple is generally ascribed to the last Tarquin, although it was dedicated by Sp. Postumius many years later, 5th June, 466 B.C. (Dionys. ix. 60; Ov. Fast. vi. 213; Fast. Ven. ad Non. Iun., CIL i². p. 220, 319; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 98). It contained a bronze statue of Tanaquil, her distaff and spindle (Plut. q. Rom. 30; Plin. NH viii. 194), and a wooden shield covered with ox-hide, which was a memorial of the league between Rome and Gabii (Dionys. iv. 58), and, after the destruction of Privernum in 329 B.C., bronze wheels made of the proceeds of the confiscated property of Vitruvius (Liv. viii. 20. 8).

Besides aedes (Grk. i(ero\n), the temple was called templum (Pliny), fanum (Tert.) and sacellum (Livy). Although small aedes were sometimes called sacella, the use of this term by Livy may perhaps be explained on the hypothesis that the shrine of this deity was open to the sky (cf. Varro v. 66; Becker, Top. 576). It stood on the Collis Mucialis (p. 437), near and probably a little north of the p
n to the sky (cf. Varro v. 66; Becker, Top. 576). It stood on the Collis Mucialis (p. 437), near and probably a little north of the porta Sanqualis, which was named from the temple (Fest. 345: Sanqualis porta appellatur proxima aedi Sanci Sancus, Lindsay. ), on the ridge of the hill (Ov. Fast. vi. 218; Liv. viii. 20. 8: versus aedem Quirini). This site lies in the angle between the modern Vie Nazionale and Quirinale, where, in the gardens of S. Silvestro dcgli Arcioni, was found in the sixteenth century a travertine base dedicated to Semo Sancus (CIL vi. 568; cf. 30994, of unknown provenance ), Loewy has pointed out that the statue which stands on this base does not belong to it, and is really an archaic Apollo (DAP 2. xi. 199; SR ii. 148: cf. HF 351). and near by in more recent times, some lead pipes inscribed with the name of the same collegium The decuria sacerdotum bidentalium (CIL xv. 7253). that dedicated the base (BC 1887, 8).
