a shrine on the Capitol, according to Augustine (de civ. dei iv. 23), who adds Mars to Terminus and Iuventas, the gods who refused to be moved to make room for the temple of Jupiter Capitolinus. It is possible that this temple may be referred to by Cassius Dio (xli. 14: κεραυνοιὶ σκηπτρόν τε διὸς καὶ ἀσπίδα κράνος τε ῎αρεως ἐν τῷ Καπιτωλίῳ ἀνακείμενα...ἐλυμήναντο, but quite uncertain (Jord. i. 2. 12; Becker 398; Rosch. ii. 2392-2393). See AREA CAPITOLINA.
