Sacellum Solis


Sacellum Solis

Next to his temple [of Quirinus] Papirius set up the first solarium horologium in Rome, and just west of it was the pulvinar Solis, a shrine dedicated to the sun. Little is known of this, except that it was in existence during the first centuries before and after Christ. (Platner)
