the name of a notable structure in the campus
Martius erected by Domitian (Chronog. a. 354, P. 146), consisting of an
enclosing porticus, the porticus Divorum (Eutrop. vii. 23
), and two aedes,
the aedes divi Titi
(CIL vi. 10234
, lines 8, 10, 23 ; cf. HJ 565, n. 18) and,
presumably, an aedes divi Vespasiani
. Eleven fragments of the Marble
Plan (59, 167, 224; and eight recently discovered, Mitt. 1903, 17-57
pl. I, II) represent the porticus (q.v.) between the Saepta and the baths
of Agrippa, and within its entrance, formed by a triple arch on the
north side, two small tetrastyle temples. These were probably the
two aedes of Titus and Vespasian, and the whole complex was the templum
Divorum, which seems ordinarily to have been known as Divorum (cf.
FUR; Chron.; Not. Reg. IX). The porticus was rectangular, about
200 metres long and 55 wide, with something over thirty columns on the
long sides and sixteen on one short side. It extended from the present
Piazza Grazioli nearly to the Via di San Marco,1
and contained a grove and
altar besides the temples. Stuart Jones (Quarterly Review, Oct. 1925,
) believes that the relief of the Suovetaurilia in the Louvre (Companion
pl. 50) belongs to the 'high altar' of this temple. After the fourth
century there is no mention of the structure, but its name is preserved
in the Diburi or Diburo of several mediaeval documents in connection
with the monastery of S. Ciriaco in Camiliano (HJ 564-567; HCh 243,
589). Many architectural remains have been found on the site of
the building, but not such as to permit of a reconstruction.
It should be noted that Bufalini in his plan marks 'Colonato antiqui'
(sic) on the south side of the church of S. Stefano del Cacco.
