Abstract

Robert E. A. Palmek,~~ The Neighborhood of Sullan Bellona at the Colline Gate~~, pp. 653-665. A review of ail the temples and cuits of Bellona in the city of Rome demonstrates that they were infected with the worship of Ma of Comana. L. Cornélius Sulla twice owed victory over his civil enemies through the intervention of Ma. Therefore he built a temple to Ma Bellona at the Colline Gate on the embankment of the Agger. From the terrace (pulvinus) on which her temple stood Bellona was called Pulvinensis. She named a Roman neighborhood, formerly the Campus Sceleratus. On Monte Mario (Mons Vatieanus) she had ties with Silver Apollo of the Vatican just as other Bellonas may be linked to Apollo or Aesculapius.
