a temple on the Esquiline (Not. Reg. V), dating from republican times (cf. Cic. de div. ii. 123: sine medico medicinam dabit Minerva), and referred to in two inscriptions (CIL vi. 10133, 30980). Its position in the Regionary Catalogue, between the campus Viminalis and the temple of Isis Patricia, points to a site in the northern part of Region V, but the discovery of hundreds of votive offerings-on one of which is one of the two inscriptions (30980)-in the via Curva (now the Via Carlo Botta), just west of the via Merulana, may mean that this was its location (BC 1887, 154-156, 192-200 ; I888, 124-125 ; Mitt. 1889, 278; HJ 353; Rosch. ii. 2989; Cons. 305-312 and reff.). Some tufa walls, resembling favissae, were also found here. For the circular building wrongly so called, see NYMPHAEUM.
