Ivppiter Optimvs Maximvs

The Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus located on the Capitoline Hill was one of the most important temples of ancient Rome, where Jupiter was worshiped along with Juno and Minerva. On the Ides of each month a white lamb was sacrificed to Jupiter, but on the Ides of January (January 13) a wether (a castrated goat or ram) was sacrificed, as shown here by lokosuperfluolegoman.
