MOLES
apud Statium Theb. l. 6. v. 157.
Quem non anguis atrox (quid enim hc opus, heu mihi, leti Mole fuit?)
omnem supervacuam copiam notat, veteri Scholiastae. Ut moles liquens aque nimia, l. 9. v. 466. Moles Dryantis, homo ingenti corporis mole, dod. l. v. 861. Moles ahena, ingens onus clypei, aere obductô multiplicibus coriis taurinis, apud eundem l. 4. v. 167. etc. imprimis vero usurpatur vox, de substructionibus immanis altitudinis et amplitudinis. Et de Equo Max. Domitiani Idem l. 1. Sylv. 1. v. 1.
Quae super imposito moles geminata Colosso
Stat Latium complexa Forum etc.
Ubi molem, more suô magnam, magniloquentiâ suâ mirificâ auget Poeta. Intelligit autem equestrem statuam Domitiani, dedicatam in memoriam equi, quem is insignem iam Iudaicô bellô habuit, uti discimus ex Iosepho Halos. l. 7. c. 2. Seu aeneum equum, quem in regione 8. urbis celebrat Publius Victor, quem; quia ultra mensuram magnus erat, colossum etiam vocat Poeta. Nempe honorati olim molibus huiusmodi Principes. Ut Augustus, non minore statuâ illâ celebratissimi Iovis Olympii, apud Icseph. ubi supra l. 3. c. 16. pari vero magnitudine Argivae Iunonis simulacro, Ibid. Nero sibi ipse colossum Solis fecit pedum centum viginti, inque vestibulo aedium suarum eum collocavit, apud Sueton. c. 31. Vastior animus Galieno Imperatori, qui sibi colossum alterô tantô Rhodiô maioram faciebat, cum occideretur, auctore Treb. Pollione. c. 7. Adimitationem videl. Deorum, quibus pares statuas erigi consuevisse, passim legimus. Vide quae de Colossis Solis, Diis aut Heroibus poni solitis, adnotat Salmasius ad Historiam Aug. Inprimis vero id factum Principi bene merito, a servatis aut restitutis populis: Sic Tiberio Principi, a Civitatibus Asiae, quae ille, post gravissimum terraemotum, eruderibus iterum excitaverat, colossum ingentis magnitudinis, prope Templum Veneris, quod erat in Foro Rom. statuasque pro numero civitatum, ordine positas, narrat Phlegon. Trallianus'
ex Apollonio Grammatio. Vespasiano quoque, post optime et cum summa laude administratum Imperium Statuam Colosseam, non minimae summae, publice fuisse decretam, habes apud Suetonium in eo c. 23. Aliam, post Iudaeam devictam, erectam, pedes altam 107. Eusebius memorat. Monumentum devictae Germaniae fuisse, ait Collector Chronologus ex Idatio l. 2. Neronis aut Titi imaginem habuisse, positumque fuisse sacrâ viâ, idem, vel ex eo potius Xiphilinus, auctor est: dicatum a Vespasiano Solis honori, et pedes 120. habuisse, refert Plin. etc. Vide Caspar. Barthium Animadversion. ad Statium d. l. et Adudersar. l. 31. c. 4. nec non hic passim, inprimis in voce Cubile et Lapis.
