another name for the curia Iulia, used only in Hist.
Aug. (Aurel. 41; Tac. 3). It may denote the growth of a late tradition
that attributed the building of the first curia to Numa rather than Tullus.
A hint that this was an intentional substitution may possibly be found
in Ammianus' phrase (xiv. 6. 6. [353 A.D.] : Pompiliani redierit securitas
(Jord. i. I. 158; ii. 252
). But it is more probably a mere
invention (SHA 1916. 7 A, 13).
