 p584  Aedes Vortumni

Article on p584 of

Samuel Ball Platner (as completed and revised by Thomas Ashby):
A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome,
London: Oxford University Press, 1929.

Vortumnus, Aedes: a temple in the Vicus Loreti Maioris (q.v.) on the Aventine (Fast. Amit. Allif. Vall. ad Id. Aug., CIL I2 p244, 217, 240, 325; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 106), in which was a portrait of M. Fulvius Flaccus in the robes of a triumphator (Fest. 209). As Vortumnus was a deity of Volsinii, and Fulvius celebrated a triumph over the Volsinians in 264 B.C. (CIL I2 p172), it is probable that the temple was built by him at that time for the god who had been brought to Rome (Prop. IV.2.3; WR 233). The day of dedication was 13th August. The temple was probably on the north-west part of the Aventine (HJ 162; Gilb. III.445‑446).
