an altar on the Capitoline, presumably1 in the AREA CAPITOLINA (q.v.). Copies of a number of the diplomata of honourably discharged soldiers, belonging to the years after 71 A.D., state that the originals were fastened to this altar (CIL iii. pp. 847-851, Suppl. pp. 1958, 1959, 2034; DE i. 604 ; Jord. i. 2. 56), and it is no doubt this altar that is referred to in a fragment of the Acta Fratrum Arvalium of uncertain date (CIL vi. 2035, 1. 4).

1 A diploma published in JRS 1926, 95-101, states that the original was ' fixa Romae in Capitolio in basi Pompi[li regis ad] aram gentis Iuliae,' which makes this presumption a certainty.
