PUTEAL IN COMITIO

a spot in the Comitium which had been struck by lightning, marked by a wellhead; under this it was supposed that the razor and whetstone of Attus Navius were buried (Cic. de Div. i. 33). His STATUE (q.v.) stood not far off (Dionys. iii. 71; Liv. i. 36; Plin. NH xv. 77). See Jord. i. 2. 357-358; Mitt. 1893, 92.
