an altar in the curia Iulia (Fast. Maff. Vat. ad v Kal. Sept., CIL ia. p. 225,242,327; Herodian. vii. 11.3), presumably erected by Augustus at the same time (29 B.C.) that he set up a statue of the same goddess in the same place (Cass. Dio li. 22; Suet. Aug. 100; Herodian. v. 5. 7). During the bitter struggle between Christianity and Paganism in the fourth century, this altar was regarded as the symbol of the old religion. It was removed from the senate house first by Constantius in 357, but seems to have been restored, by Julian, no doubt, and finally banished by Gratian in 382 (Sym. Rel. 3; Ambros. Ep. i. 17. 4; 18. , 7, O, 32; 57. 4-6; Seeck, Symmachus liii-liv, lviii; WR 98, 141 ; Jord. i. 2. 251-252).
