APOLLO ARGENTEUS

probably a silver statue of Apollo which seems to have stood on or near the via Triumphalis in the north-west suburbs of the city, for an inscription (CIL vi. 2233) found on Monte Mario records a tomb built interius agro Apollinis argentei. Besides ager Apollinis argentei, ab Apolline argenteo occurs on one inscription (CIL vi. 29967), and probably on a second (ib. 21861), indicating that the statue had given its name to the district (BC 1913, 54-57; PBS ix. 205-213). See BELLONA PULVINENSIS, AEDES.
