the new sanctuary of the curies mentioned only by Festus (174), who says that it was built proxime COMPITUM FABRICIUM (q.v.) because the curiae veteres had become too small, but that seven curies refused to move. The new building probably stood east of the veteres, on the Caelian, near the vicus Fabricii (Jord. i. I. 191 ; HJ 201 ; Gilb. i. 196-9; 208-11; ii. 126-7).
