an altar erected by the senate in 19 B.C. near the porta Capena, in honour of the return of Augustus from the east, when he entered the city, 12th October (Mon. Anc. ii. 29, Greek version, vi. 7:βωμὸς Τύχης Σωτήριου; Fast. Amit. ad iv Id. Oct. et ad xviii Kal. Ian.; Fast. Cum. ad xviii Kal. Ian.; Prop. iv. 3. 71; Cass. Dio liv. 10:Τύχῃ τε ᾿Επαναγώγῳ βωμόν). At this altar the Augustalia were celebrated by pontiffs and Vestals (Mommsen, RGDA2 46-47; CIL i². p. 331-332). The altar itself was dedicated on 15th December (sec Fasti above) and is represented on several coins (Babelon ii. 412, Rustia 3 ; Cohen, August. 102-108, 513; BM Rep. ii. 34. 4440-4; 77. 4580, Aug. 2. 358-361). An aedituus Fortunae reducis (CIL vi. 8705) can hardly have belonged to this altar (HJ 204; Rosch. i. 1525-1526; RE vii. 37; BC 1908, 121-122).
