VENUS CALVA, TEMPLUM
a temple which the Roman senate is said to have
ordered built at some unknown date in honour of those Roman matrons
who had given their hair for bowstrings (Hist. Aug. Maxim. 33; cf.
Serv. Aen. i. 720
; Lact. Inst. i. 20
. 27; Pr. Myth. i. 447
; RE.iii. 1408).
Nothing further is known of this temple and its existence is very doubtful
(SHA 1916, 7
. A, 13).
