a temple of the Lares who protect sailors, in the campus Martius. It was vowed by the praetor, L. Aemilius Regillus, while engaged in a naval battle with the fleet of Antiochus the Great in 190 B.C., and dedicated by M. Aemilius Lepidus, when censor, on 22nd December, 179 (Liv. xl. 52. 4; Macrob. i. io. o ; Fast. Praen. ad. xi Kal. Ian., CIL i². p. 238, 338; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 120; HJ487; Gilb. iii. 149; Rosch. ii. 1870-1871 ; WR 170). On the doors of the temple was a dedicatory inscription in Saturnian metre (Liv. loc. cit.; cf. Baehrens, Frag. poet. Rom. 54-55). The temple stood 'in porticu Minucia' (Fast. Praen.), and therefore its exact site depends on that of the porticus (q.v.; AR 1909, 76, p. i; RE xii. 812.).
