a temple of Fortuna, the first-born daughter of Jupiter, on the Capitol, ascribed by tradition to Servius Tullius (Plut. q. Rom. 74:πρωτογενεία; de fort. Rom. 10:τὸ τῆς Πριμιγενείας λεγομένης πρωτογόνον τις ἂν ἑρμηνεύσειε; CIL xiv. 2852 =Carm. epig. 249; Clemens Alex. protrept. iv. 51 (?)). It was probably in the area Capitolina (Jord. i. 2. 64; Becker, Top. 404-405; Rosch. i. 1518; RE vii. 29; WR 261). See also FORTUNAE (TRES), AEDES.
