1500 AD - 1599 AD (search for this): entry arcus-octavii
ARCUS OCTAVII an arch on the Palatine which Augustus is said to have erected in honour of his father (Plin. NH xxxvi. 36: Lysiae opus quod in Palatio super arcum divus Augustus honori Octavi patris sui dicavit in aedicula columnis adornata, id est quadriga currusque et Apollo ac Diana ex uno lapide). It has been conjectured (BC 1883, 190) that this arch formed the entrance to the sacred precinct of the temple of APOLLO (q.v.), but this seems impossible of proof. Some fragments found in the middle of the sixteenth century may have belonged to this arch (Vacca, Mem. 76). The aedicula with a statue on the top of the arch was without parallel in Rome, so far as we know (Gardthausen, Augustus und seine Zeit i. 962; Richter 147; HJ 69; Jex-Blake and Sellers, The Elder Pliny's Chapters on the History of Art 208).
