[19] This prefect himself 1 passed his term of office in complete quiet, allowing no public discord over and above reasonable remonstrance 2 ; and he restored many old buildings. Among others he built a huge colonnade near the Baths of Agrippa and called it the Portico of Good Outcome, because there is a temple 3 to that deity to be seen near by.

1 Claudius; see § 17, above.

2 That is, which the prefect could not quiet in that way. Querella is ambiguous; and the meaning may be: “except that caused by just complaints.”

3 See Varro, R.R. i. 1, 6; cf. Cato, Agr. 141, 3 (of Mars), utique tu fruges . . . grandire beneque evenire siris; Pliny, N.H. xxxiv. 77, says that she was represented in Rome with a patera in her right hand and an ear of wheat and poppies in her left. Her temple at Rome was in the Ninth Region.
