Concordia


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The cult of personified harmonious agreement (Gk. homonoia) within the body politic at Rome is indicative of its absence. The first temple overlooking the Forum from the lower slopes of the Capitoline was linked to the troubles associated with the Licinio‐Sextian legislation of 367 bc (see consul); a major rebuilding by Opimius in 121 commemorated the suppression of Gaius Sempronius Gracchus and his followers, and the grandest rebuilding by Tiberius (vowed 7 bc, dedicated as Concordia Augusta, ad 10) was intended to celebrate a really elusive solidarity within Augustus' household. Some of the lavish marble architecture of the last temple survives.
