(Plin. NH xxxiv. 77). Cf. CIL i². 725, 730-732=vi. 30920-4 for dedicatory
inscriptions set up at this temple. Whether vi. 30928 (with which go
30921, 30923; cf. ib. is. 732) belonged to it or to the CAPITOLIUM VETUS
(q.v.) cannot be determined.
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 it
