ExtractTwelve deities (six male, six female), perhaps those worshipped at the *lectisternium of 217 bce (Livy 22. 10. 9), whose gilded statues stood in the Forum in the late republic (Varro, Rust. 1. 1. 4), like the Twelve Gods whose altar stood in the Agora at Athens. The relationship of these to the modest monument on the slopes of the Capitoline hill, whose rebuilding in ce 367 is recorded in an inscription which calls it the ‘Porticus Deorum Consentium’, is not clear.
