Hercules and the Muses

The Temple of Hercules and the Muses in Rome erected by M. Fulvius Nobilior after his capture of Ambracia in 189 B.C., and probably after his triumph in 187. Fulvius is said to have done this because he learned in Greece that Hercules was a musagetes. In this temple Fulvius set up a copy of the Fasti with notes, probably the first of this kind), and also the statues from Ambracia of the nine Muses by an unknown artist, and that of Hercules playing the lyre.
