one of the two altars near the Tigillum Sororium (Fest. 297: Dionys. iii. 22. 7: βωμὸς ᾿Ιανοῦ Κορατίων. The other was dedicated to Iuno Sororia (῞Ηρα ᾿αδελφή), and on them expiatory sacrifices had been offered from very early times. These altars belonged originally, in all probability, to the common cult of Janus and Juno at the beginning of the month (WR 104), but afterwards they were connected with the legend of Horatius and the murder of his sister (see TIGILLUM SORORIUM, and HJ 322; Gilb. i. 178-179; ii. 55-56; Rosch. ii. 21; RE Suppl. iii. 1178-1179).
