IUPPITER ARBORATOR

a shrine of some sort of Jupiter, apparently as a protector of trees. It is mentioned only in Not. in Region XI (om. Cur.), and the correctness of the reading has been disputed, but it seems more reasonable to accept it, and to suppose (with Hiilsen) that the shrine stood in the circus Maximus (HJ 141 ; DAP 2. vi. 267 ; Rosch. ii. 661; Pr. Reg. 91 ; Jord. ii. 558-559; Gilb. iii. 436).
