a temple built by Q. Fabius Maximus Gurges, out of fines imposed on women convicted of adultery. It was begun in 295 B.C., and dedicated after the close of the third Samnite war (Liv. x. 31. 9; Serv. Aen. i. 720: dicitur etiam Obsequens Venus quam Fabius Gurges post peractum bellum Samniticum hoc nomine consecravit, quod sibi fuerit obsecuta). It was ad circum Maximum (Fast. Vail. ad xIv Kal. Sept., CIL i'. p. 240, 325; Ant. ap. NS 1921, 108; Liv. loc. cit.; xxix. 37. 2; xli. 27. 8 (?) ; Fest. 265), that is probably near the south-east end of the circus on the Aventine side, near the shrine of Murcia. The day of dedication was 19th August, the Vinalia rustica (Fast. Vail. loc. cit.; Fest. 265). It is mentioned in the third century (Tert. de spect. 8; HJ 114; WR 289; Pr. Myth. i. 446).
