apparently a shrine or altar of Hercules, which was also used as an indication of locality, if we may accept that interpretation of two inscriptions (CIL vi. 7655: Sex. Clodius Sex. 1. Amoenus eborarius ab Hercule Primigenio; 9645: P. Saenius P. 3. 1. Arsaces monestrator. ab Hercul. Primig.; cf. Bull. d. Inst. 1861, 9 ff.). The epithet is of uncertain significance, and nothing is known of this cult or of the location of the shrine (Rosch. i. 2968-2969).
