mentioned only in one inscription, a military diploma (CIL iii. p. 845 II.); but probably the same building is referred to in another (ib. p. 1963, XVI.: post thesarium veterem). This was on the Capitol and served to house the chariots, tensae (Fest. 364), in which the statues of the gods were carried in processions (Jord. i. 2. 52; BC 1910, 49-52). Cf. also Suet. Vesp. 5 ut tensam Iovis optimi maximi e sacrario ... deduceret.
