a shrine dedicated in 231 B.C. by Cn. Papirius Maso from the booty that he had taken in Corsica (Cic. de nat. deor. iii. 52). Its site was probably just outside the porta Fontinalis in the extreme southern part of the campus Martius (cf. a fragment of the calendar found on the Esquiline in 1894, CIL vi. 32493, pr. Id. Oct.: 1 Fonti extra p . . ., probably to be completed portam Fontinalem, and Fest. 85: Fontinalia fontium sacra unde et Romae Fontinalis porta; HJ 483-484; RE vi. 2839; DE iii. 181).

1 This date is incorrect; other calendars record the Fontinalia on the 13th (cf. Fast. Ant. in NS 1921, 116).
