VORTUMNUS, AEDES a temple in the Vicus LORETI MAIORIS (q.v.) on the Aventine (Fast. Amit. Allif. Vail. ad Id. Aug., CIL i.a p. 244, 217, 240, 325; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, io6), in which was a portrait of M. Fulvius Flaccus in the robes of a triumphator (Fest. 209). As Vortumnus was a deity of Volsinii, and Fulvius celebrated a triumph over the Volsinians in 264 B.C. (CIL i.a p. 172), it is probable that the temple was built by him at that time for the god who had been brought to Rome (Prop. iv. 2. 3; WR 233). The day of dedication was 13th August. The temple was probably on the north-west part of the Aventine (HJ 162; Gilb. iii. 445-446).
