(Fast. Allif. cit.), Victor (al., Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921,
a temple of Hercules near the porta Trigemina (ad portam
Trigeminam, Macrob. iii. 6
. io; Serv. Aen. viii. 36
. 3). Its day of
dedication was 13th August (Fast. Allif. ad Id. Aug., CIL ia. p. 217, 325;
Fast. Ant. cit.). It was probably close to the altar of IUPPITER INVENTOR
(q.v.), which Hercules was said to have built after slaying Cacus (Dionys.
). Whether this was the temple built by the merchant Marcus
Octavius Herrenus 1
(Masurius Sabinus ap. Macrob. iii. 6
. II; cf. Serv.
Aen. viii. 363
; Panegyr. Maxim. 13), and whether it is alluded to on
a coin of Antoninus Pius (Froehner, Med. p. 56; Cohen, Anton. 454;
Rosch. i. 2289
; Jord. i. 2
. 482) is entirely uncertain. (For this temple
and the considerable literature relating thereto, see Rosch. i. 2903
2905, 2916-2917; DAP 2. vi. 244; Altm. 32; RE viii. 554
557, 558, 560; WR 275). Another coin (Cohen, Anton. 213) has a
strong claim to represent the temple and the altar of Iuppiter; the
former has eight columns, and so has a coin of Maximinn (Boll. Mus.
Civ. Padova, 1910, 131; Gnecchi, Medaglioni, ii. 128. 5; Boll. Ass.
Arch. Rom. v. (1915) 109
sqq. (esp. 126-129), where the temple built
by Herrenus is identified with that of Hercules Victor in the forum
