VENUS HORTORUM SALLUSTIANORUM, AEDES

a temple in the HORTI SALLUSTIANI (q.v.) which is mentioned in three inscriptions (CIL vi. 122, 32451, 32468: ex hortis Sail.). It is probable that this is only a late name for the temple of VENUS ERUCINA (q.v.) which lay within the limits of these gardens (HJ 416; WR 289), but the attempts to identify it with any ruins that have been found have proved unsuccessful (BC 1888, 3-11; 1914, 397; Mitt. 1889, 270-274; 1892, 313; M61. 1891, 167-170).
