Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, FELICITAS, AEDES (search)
FELICITAS, AEDES a temple erected by L. Licinius Lucullus from booty taken during his campaign in Spain in 150-151 B.C., and dedicated by him after 146 (Strabo viii. 6. 23, p. 381 (epOv ); Cass. Dio, frg. 76. 2 (*tuxai=on; cf. 1. 10. 2)). For the embellishment of this temple L. Mummius presented Lucullus with works of art that he had brought from Greece, and certain statues of the Muses by Praxiteles from Thespiae which stood in front of the temple (Cic. Verr. iv. 4, 126; Plin. NH xxxiv. 69; xxxvi. 39). It was in front of this temple that Caesar broke the axle of his chariot when celebrating his triumph in 46 B.C. (Cass. Dio xliii. 21), and it therefore lay on the line of the triumphal procession. In describing this accident Suetonius (Caes. 37) says, ' Velabrum praetervehens,' but we know no other details as to its site (Jord. i. 2. 486; DAP 2. vi. 262; Gilb. iii. 106, 107; RE vi. 2163; Rosch. i. 1473). It was burned early in the reign of Claudius and apparently not rebuilt. Pai
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, IUPPITER STATOR, AEDES (search)
IUPPITER STATOR, AEDES (templum, Pliny): a temple which, with that of Iuno Regina and the enclosing PORTICUS METELLI (q.v.), was built by Q. Caecilius Metellus Macedonicus after his triumph in 146 B.C. (Vell. i. I. 3). It is referred to as aedes Iovis Metellina (Fest. 363) and aedes Metelli (Plin. NH xxxvi. 40; CIL vi. 8708). It was inside the porticus Metelli (Vitr. iii. 2. 5), close to the circus Flaminius (Macrob. iii. 4. 2; Hemer. Urb., CIL i'. p. 252, 339), and its exact site is known, beneath the church of S. Maria in Campitelli. The temple of Juno was just west of this, on the opposite side of the Via della Tribuna di Campitelli. It is not stated in so many words by Velleius (loc. cit.) that Metellus built both temples, but this is the natural inference from the passage. He is also said to have been the first to build a temple in Rome entirely of marble, and this statement probably applies to both structures. In front of the temples Metellus placed Lysippus' equestrian st
