a temple of Flora, built by the aediles Lucius and Marcus Publicius, in 240 1 or 238 B.C. (cf. BM. Rep. i. 469, n. 3); restored by Augustus, in part at least, and dedicated by Tiberius in 17 A.D. (Tac. Ann. ii. 49 ); and probably again restored in the fourth century by the younger Symniachus (Anth. Lat. iv. 112-114). It stood on the slope of the Aventine at the west end of the circus Maximus (Fast. Allif. ad Id. Aug.; cf. CIL xv. 7172), probably on the CLIVUS PUBLICIUS (q.v.), which was built by the same aediles (HJ 118; RE vi. 2748; Merlin 95, 30; cf. AD TO(N)SORES).

1 So Veil. i. 14. 8 (acc. to CIL and HJ 118; WR makes it 24) ; Plin. NH xviii. 286 is the authority for the later date. The date of foundation is given as 28th April by Fast. Praen. (while Fast. Allif. (13th Aug.) refers to a restoration; see CIL i². p. 325) and the Floralia lasted from that date till 3rd May.
