(aedes, Liv. bis; νεώς, Dionys.; ἱερον, Mon. Anc., Plut.):

a temple on the Aventine vowed by Camillus just before the taking of Veii in 396 B.C. to the Iuno Regina of Veii (quae nunc Veios colis), and dedicated by him in 392 (Liv. v. 21. 3, 22. 6-7, 23. 7, 31. 3, 52. 10). In this temple was the wooden statue of the goddess brought by Camillus from Veii (Dionys. xiii. 3; Plut. Cam. 6; Val. Max. i. 8. 3; Rosch. ii. 609-610), and it is mentioned several times in connection with gifts and sacrifices offered in atonement for prodigia (Liv. xxi. 62. 8; xxii. I. 17; xxxi. 12. 9; cf. xxvii. 37. 7). It was restored by Augustus (Mon. Anc. iv. 6), but is not mentioned afterwards. Two dedicatory inscriptions (CIL vi. 364-365) found near the church of S. Sabina indicate the approximate site of the temple, which corresponds (not with the church itself, which stands on the site of a private house, as recent discoveries have shown; see SR ii. 329-342; DAP 2. xiii. 119-126; Mufioz, Chiesa di S. Sabina 1924; HC 430-431) with its place in the lustral procession of 207 B.C. (Liv. xxvii. 37. 7; WR 426), near the upper end of the clivus Publicius (HJ 165-167; Merlin 106, 196-201, 301; WR 187-190; Gilb. iii. 77-78, 444; Rosch. ii. 600-601, 603; RE x. 1 119). The day of dedication was Ist September (Hemer. Arv. ad Kal. Sept., CIL vi. 2295 =32482).
