Excerpt: ...NS. 1910, p. 13), Marcus Aurelius (EE. vn 1227), and Septimius Severus (373). Flamen8 alone, which occurs three times in the inscriptions of Ostia, is probably the same as flamen divorum, which occurs once (444). These flamines were among the most important men of the colony, See 353 (inscription of Fabius Hermogenes). Cf. a very similar inscription of the same man found recently, NS. 1910, p. 13. 373, 400, 4142- a flamen perpetuus is recorded in an inscription published recently, Bull. com. 1910, p. 332. 5 Ostia e il Porto di Roma antica, 1904, p. 12. Cf. Lanciani, NS. 1881, p. 114. Excavations now in progress in the vicinity of this temple may decide its identity, as well as the question of whether it is situated in the main Forum of the city. There is no evidence for the independent worship of Roma at Ostia. CO., however, the inscription given by Vaglieri, NS. 1910, pp. 104 ft., which records the erection, apparently at Rome, of a statue dedicated to Urbs at the expense of the inhabitants of Ostia. The statue was set up by Ragonius Vineentius Celsus v. c. praefectus annonae urbis Roniae. Cf. Wissowa, Religion mid Kultus, p. 341, n. 1. 301, 332, 341 and p. 5. Beurlier, Le culte imp6rial, Paris, 1891, pp. 108-172, seems to believe that the simple flamines were priests of the reigning emperor. often municipal magistrates, and sometimes Roman knights (353, 390). Especially interesting is the dedication which is on the base of an equestrian statue of Fabius Hermogenes: 353 (restored from the similar inscription, N8. 1910, p. 13) C. Domitio C. Fil. Pal.)
