xxvii. 37. 11). These indications point definitely to a site just north of the theatre of Marcellus and east of the porticus Octaviae, on the street that led through the porta Carmentalis to the campus Martius, a little south of the present Piazza Campitelli. 32 B.C. and governor of Syria (Prosop. iii. 253. 556; but cf. JRS 1916, 183). Livy's statement (vii. 20. 9: relicum anni (353 B.C.) muris turribusque reficiendis consumptum et aedes Apollinis dedicata est) may refer to an earlier restoration, as the direct evidence of Asconius precludes the possibility of any second temple. This temple was also known as that of Apollo Medicus, and in 179 B.C. the censors let the contract for building a porticus from it to the Tiber, behind the temple of Spes (Liv.

APOLLO, AEDES (delubrum, Pliny bis, templum, id. bis): the first temple of Apollo in Rome, in the campus Martius, vowed in 433 B.C. because of a plague that had raged in the city (Liv. iv. 25. 3), and dedicated in 431 by the consul Cn. Julius (Liv. iv. 29. 7). It was in or close to an earlier cult centre of the god, the APOLLINAR (q.v.), either a grove or altar. This was the only temple of Apollo in Rome until Augustus built that on the Palatine (Asc. in Cic. orat. in tog. cand. 90-91), and being a foreign cult was outside the pomerium (extra urbem, Liv. xxxiv. 43. 2; xxxvii. 58. 3). Therefore it was a regular place for extra-pomerial meetings of the senate (Liv. locc. citt.; xxxix. 4. I; xli. 17. 4; Cic. ad Q. fr. ii. 3. 3; ad fam. viii. 4. 4, 8. 5, 6; ad Att. xv. 3. I; cf.

Below the cloisters of S. Maria in Campitelli are remains of its podium wall, 13 metres long, over 4 high and over 2 thick. Delbruck assumed without question that it was a part of the original structure; but Frank, while admitting that the core, of blocks of cappellaccio tufa, may belong to it, maintains, owing to the use in the facing of tufa from Monte Verde (the southern end of the Janiculum) that the rest belongs to the restoration of 179 A.D. (Liv. xl. 51. 6, which he refers to the temple itself), except some concrete with facing of opus reticulatum, attributable to the restoration of Sosius (Delbruck, Apollotempel, Rome, 1903; HJ 535-538; Wissowa, Rel. 294; Arch. f. Religionsw. 1909, 74-75; BC 1893, 46-60; Bull. d. Inst. 1878, 218; Mem. Am. Acad. ii. 60-61 ; TF 131-134; JRS 1925, 123).
plained as referring to a restoration of this temple, carried out by a Sosius, probably C. Sosius, consul in 32 B.C. and governor of Syria (Prosop. iii. 253. 556; but cf. JRS 1916, 183). Livy's statement (vii. 20. 9: relicum anni (353 B.C.) muris turribusque reficiendis consumptum et aedes Apollinis dedicata est) may refer to an earlier restoration, as the direct evidence of Asconius precludes the possibility of any second temple.

The MSS. read et post Spei ad Tiberim aedem Apollinis Medici, which Frank prefers-see below). In Greek it appears as *)apollw/nion (Cass. Dio frg. 50. I). The shedding of tears for three days by the statue of Apollo, undoubtedly that in this temple, is cited amon
