Appian, Illyrian Wars (ed. Horace White), CHAPTER V (search)
s, and promised to pay the past-due tribute.At this point there is a lacuna in the text. In like manner other tribes at his approach gave hostages for observing the treaties that he made with them. Some, however, he was prevented by sickness from reaching. These gave no hostages and made no treaties. It appears, however, that they were subjugated later. Thus Augustus subdued the whole Illyrian country, not only the parts that Y.R. 725 had revolted from the Romans, but those that had never B.C. 29 before been under their rule. Wherefore the Senate awarded him an Illyrian triumph, which he enjoyed later, together with one for his victory over Antony. The remaining peoples, who are considered by the Romans to be parts of Illyria, are the Rhætians and the Noricans, on this side of Pannonia, and the Mysians on the other side as far as the Euxine Sea. I think that the Rhætians and Noricans were subdued by Gaius Cæsar during the Gallic war or by Augustus during the Pannonian war, as the

AMPHITHEATRUM STATILII TAURI an amphitheatre built of stone by L. Statilius Taurus in 29 B.C., probably in the southern part of the campus Martius (Cass. Dio li. 23; Suet. Aug. 29; Cal. 18; Caligula is said to have looked upon it with scorn (Cass. Dio lix. 10), perhaps on account of its small size. Tac. Ann. iii. 72; Strabo, v. 3. 8, p. 236; CIL vi. 6226-6228). It was burned in 64 A.D. (Cass. Dio lxii. 18), and Nero built another (q.v.) on the same site (HJ 496; cf. 595, HCh 197 for the church of S. Angeli de domo Egidii a Poco, not de Rota, as Lanciani (Forma 14) and Armellini 2 363 believed).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ARCUS AUGUSTI (search)
ARCUS AUGUSTI * two arches erected in honour of Augustus in the forum, one in 29 B.C., to commemorate the victory at Actium, the other in 19 B.C., on account of the return of the standards captured by the Parthians at Carrhae (Cass. Dio li. 19; latter stood iuxta aedem divi Iulii (Schol. Veron. Verg. Aen. vii. 605). These arches are represented on coins, that of 29 B.C. 1 Dated 16 B.C. by the B.M. Catalogue. on a denarius of Vinicius (Babelon, Vinicia 4; Cohen, Aug. 544; BM Rep. ii. 50, 4arian marble 2.67 metres long, was found in 1546/7 close to these foundations, which records a dedication to Augustus in 29 B.C. This inscription may have belonged to this arch, although it cannot have been the principal inscription on the attic. Noa drawing by the later-seventeenth century-hand). It is noted by Hulsen that, though an arch was voted by the senate in 29 B.C., it is nowhere stated that it was consecrated. He attributes all the coins to the same arch, and follows a conjecture of

9; cf. HCh 437) places it close to the church of the Maddalena, connecting it with the wall enclosing the precinct of the TEMPLUM MATIDIAE (q.v.). Rushforth (JRS 1919, 37-40, 53-54) conjectures that it is the arch of Augustus described in the twelfth century by Magister Gregorius as bearing the inscription 'ob orbem devictum Romano regno restitutum et r. p. per Augustum receptam populus Romanus hoc opus condidit,' and mentioned by Dio Cassius (li. 19) as decreed to be set up in the forum in 29 B.C. (but not actually erected) and afterwards placed here. The inscription, though it cannot be a literal transcript, may be the echo of a genuine one (see ARCUS AUGUSTI). A relief on this arch is said (Anon. Magl.) to have represented a woman asking a favour of Trajan,Boni believes that the legend was inspired by a relief in the arch of Constantine- that showing the entry of Marcus Aurelius into Rome, with a recumbent female figure representing a road. and about this scene a legend was woven,

CURIA IULIA * the new senate house begun by Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. just before his assassination and continued by the triumvirs (Cass. Dio xliv. 5; xlv. 17 ; xlvii. 19). It was completed and dedicated in 29 B.C. by Augustus (Mon. Anc. iv. 1: curiam et continens ei chalcidicum feci; vi. 13; Suet. Calig. 60; Cass. Dio li. 22). Like its predecessor, the curia Hostilia, and the curia Pompeia, it was inaugurated as a templum (Varro ap. Gell. xiv. 7. 7). See also CIL vi. 877a (=32324), 1718, 32326 (Act. Lud. Saec. Sever. i. 5); s.c. de Mytilenaeis in Berl. Sitzber. 1889, 966. Augustus set up in it a statue of Victory (Dio li. 22 ; v. VICTORIA, ARA) and built an annex called the CHALCIDICUM (q.v.). The Secretarium Senatus, another annex of the senate house, probably also formed part of the structure of Augustus, though we have no direct evidence of its existence before the time of Diocletian. The curia Iulia, like the older curia, was built in comitio (Plin. NH xxxv. 27, 131); in fact

M. ANTONIUS, DOMUS the house of the triumvir on the Palatine, which afterwards belonged to Messala (Pros. iii. p. 365) and to M. Agrippa, and was burned in 29 B.C. (Cass. Dio liii. 27).

f the nine Muses by an unknown artist, and that of Hercules playing the lyre (Plin. NH xxxv. 66; Ov. Fast. vi. 812; cf. Ars Am. iii. 168); and a bronze shrine of the Muses that was attributed to the time of Numa and had been in the temple of Honos et Virtus until this was built (Serv. Aen. i. 8). The statue of Hercules and those of the nine Muses are represented on denarii of Q. Pomponius Musa, about 64 B.C. (Babelon ii. 361; Cohen, Med. Cons. 266, pl. 34, 4; BM. Rep. i. 441, 3602-3632). In 29 B.C. L. Marcius Philippus restored this temple and built a porticus, the PORTICUS PHILIPPI (q.v.) around it (Suet. Aug. 29). The day of dedication was 30th June (Ov. Fast. vi. 797; Mart. iv. 49. 13). This temple is mentioned in Not. (Reg. IX, om. Cur.), and its site is ascertained from a fragment (33) of the Marble Plan. It was in circo Flaminio (Eum. loc. cit.), that is, close to the south-west part of the circus itself, and north-west of the porticus Octaviae, where some remains have been foun
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, IULIUS, DIVUS, AEDES (search)
IULIUS, DIVUS, AEDES (delubrum, Pl.; h(rw=|on, Cass. Dio;new/s, App.): the temple of the deified Julius Caesar, authorised by the triumvirs in 42 B.C. (Cass. Dio xlvii. 18), but apparently built by Augustus alone (Mon. Anc. iv. 2: aedem divi Iuli ... feci), and dedicated 18th August, 29 B.C. (Cass. Dio li. 22; Hemerol. Amit. Antiat. ad xv Kal. Sept.). The body of Caesar was burnt at the east end of the forum, in front of the Regia (Liv. ep. 116; Plut. Caes. 68), and here an altar was at once erected (bwmo/s, App. BC i. 4; ii. 148; iii. 2), and a column of Numidian marble twenty feet high inscribed Parenti Patriae (Suet. Caes. 85). Column and altar were soon removed by Dolabella Cf. also Cass. Dio xliv. 50. Caesar's veterans had some idea of replacing the altar (Cic. ad Fam. xi. 2, veteranos de reponenda ara cogitare), which may be identical with the ' bustum ' of Cic. Phil. i. 5, though in Jord. i. 2. 407, it is interpreted as a cenotaph behind the altar. Cf. CR 1899, 186; and fo
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, VICTORIA, ARA (search)
VICTORIA, ARA 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).
