of Salamis, was the architect of the temple of Mars in the Flaminian Circus (Cornel. Nepos, apud priscian, Gr. Lat. viii. col. 792, Fr. xi.), and also, if we accept the emendation of Turnebus (Hermodori for Hermodi), of the temple of Jupiter Stator in the portico of Metellus Macedonicus (Vitr. 3.2.5, Schneider). There was also a Hermodorus of Salamis, a naval architect at Rome, whom the great Antonius defended in the year of his consulship, B. C. 99. (Cicero, Cic. de Orat. 1.12.) Now Metellus triumphed over Andriscus in B. C. 148. These two architects, therefore, can hardly be the same. In fact, the conjecture of Turnebus is suspicious, for the very reason that it is so plausible. Schneider reads hujusmodi instead of the Hermodi of the MSS. (Comment. in Vitruv. l.c.)
