Aius locutius (or loquens), the divine voice, ‘sayer and speaker’, that warned of the coming of the Gauls shortly before the battle of the *Allia. The warning was not heeded. As expiation, a precinct (*templum) and *altar (ara) were established near Vesta's shrine, on the via Nova, where the voice was heard.
