Abstract :
During excavations conducted in 1930 on the site of ancient Capena, some architectural elements of a small temple building, dedicated to Genius Augusti, were found. Following the identification of a new inscribed frieze lintel from the Vatican Museums, ascribable to the same building, and others fragments identified in a private collection and in a judiciary seizure, a general review of all the known pieces was conducted, arriving at a proposal of partial reconstruction of the monument and the identification of the Roman architect who projected and realized the building, [P.] Volumnius Dion, proposing the hypothesis that it could be a freedman of P. Volumnius Eutrapelus, praefectus fabrum of Antonius.
