a temple of Hercules outside the porta Collina, to which Hannibal advanced when he marched against Rome in 211 B.C. (Liv. xxvi. 10. 3: Hannibal ... ad portam Collinam usque ad Herculis templum est progressus). Nothing further is known of this temple, for the two inscriptions (CIL vi. 284, 30899 (=i2. 981)), sometimes referred to it, were found one and two kilometres from the porta Collina (HJ 416; Mitt. 1891, 114; RE viii. 578-579; Rosch. i. 2922; DE iii. 704).1
