HERCULES SULLANUS

a statue or shrine of Hercules on the Esquiline, mentioned only in Reg. (Reg. V). It was probably near the NYMPHAEUM (q.v.), now called the temple of Minerva Medica, east of the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele. Whether it was a statue or shrine, and whether erected by Sulla in memory of his victory over Marius on the Esquiline or not, is wholly uncertain. (For various explanations, and the relevant literature of the discussion, see RE viii. 579; Rosch. i. 2921 ; DE iii. 704; LS iii. 161; BPW 1913, 1494.)
