* (ἱερόν, ἕδος):

a temple of Τύχη ἄρρην (undoubtedly the Greek of Fortuna Virilis), ascribed to Servius Tullius (Plut. q. Rom. 74; de fort. Rom. 10; cf. Fast. Praen. ad Kal. Apr., CIL i². p. 235). The site of the temple is unknown, and its actual existence has been called in question1 (Rosch. i. 1518; RE vii. 22). The name has been very generally (but wrongly) applied to the temple of MATER MATUTA (q.v.).
