Sta’tor [the stopper or arrestor].
 
When the Romans fled from the Sabines, they stopped at a certain place and made terms with the victors. On this spot they after wards built a temple to Jupiter, and called it the temple of Jupiter Stator or Jupiter who caused them to stop in their flight.   1
       
“Here, Stator Jove and Phœbus, god of verse
The votive tablet I suspend.”
