a temple of Iuventas (Hebe) vowed by M. Livius Salinator on the day of the battle of the Metaurus in 207 B.C., begun by him when censor in 204, and dedicated by C. Licinius Lucullus in 193 (Liv. xxxvi. 36. 5-6). It was burned in 16 B.C. (Cass. Dio liv. 19. 7:τὸ τῆς Νεότητος μέγαρον) and restored by Augustus (Mon. Anc. iv. 8 =Grk. x. 12:ναὸς Νεότητος). It is possible that in later times the Roman youth on assuming the toga virilis made their offerings in this temple, although this custom was assigned by Lucius Piso to Servius Tullius (Dionys. iv. 15. 5), and the early offerings were made at the shrine of Iuventas on the Capitol. This temple was ' in circo Maximo ' (Liv. loc. cit.) and near that of Summanus (Plin. NH xxix. 57), therefore probably on the Aventine side, towards the west end of the circus (HJ 119; Rosch. ii. 765; Gilb. iii. 93; WR 136).
