a temple mentioned in Reg. (Cur. Reg. IX, om. Not.) between the Iseum and the Pantheon, and included among the buildings erected by Domitian (Chron. 146; Hier. a. Abr. 2105). It is also mentioned in Eins. (Jord. ii. 654) 8. 7 as Minervium; ibi S. Maria, and in the Mirabilia (22) as iuxta Pantheon templum Minervae Calcidiae. Whether it was a restoration of the temple built by Pompeius (Plin. NH vii. 97) cannot be determined. The church of S. Maria sopra Minerva was known as S. Maria de Minerva until the fifteenth century: and we need not suppose that it is built on part of the foundations of this temple. Some authorities believe that part of the cella itself was still standing in the early sixteenth century (BC 1883, 42; LR 463; HJ 573-574).1 (For the history of this church, see Arm. 485-489; HCh 346-347.)

1 Giovannoli (Roma Antica, iii. 13), reproduced in BC 1901, pl. iii., does not, however, represent the temple, but part of the THERMAE AGRIPPAE (q.v.).
