῞Ορτας ναός) :

a temple of a goddess otherwise unknown, which Plutarch says was always kept open (q. Rom. 46). It is not certain that this temple was in Rome, or that Plutarch had not confused the goddess with Hora Quirini (WR 156; Rosch. i. 2749; cf. NS 1921, 109, under date Aug. 23). It is also possible that her temple is referred to in the corrupt passage (Hist. Aug. Elag. I), as Rose, Plutarch, Roman Questions, in loc., conjectures.
