Lightning frequently struck on the Capitol and did much damage,
probably to the temple itself (Cic. Cat. iii. 19; de Div. i. 20; ii. 45;
Cass. Dio xli. 14; xlii. 26; xlv. 17; xlvii. 10), and Augustus restored
it at great expense, probably about 26 B.C., but without placing his own
name upon it (Mon. Anc. iv. 9). It is thrice mentioned in the Acta Lud.
Saec. (CIL vi. 32323. 9, 29, 70). Further injury by lightning is recorded
in 9 B.C. (Cass. Dio Iv. I) and 56 A.D. (Tac. Ann. xiii. 24).
In 69 A.D. the second temple, though ungarrisoned and unplundered,
was burned when the Capitol was stormed by the Vitellians (Tac. Hist.
iii. 71; Suet. Vit. 15; Cass. Diolxiv. 17; Stat. Silv. v. 3. 195-200; Hier.
a. Abr. 2089), and rebuilt by Vespasian on its original lines but with still
greater height (Tac. Hist. iv. 4, 9, 53; Suet. Vesp. 8; Cass. Dio lxv. 7. I ;
Plut. Popl. 15; Aur. Vict. Caes. 9. 7; ep. de Caes. 9. 8; Zon. xi. 17).
