"Conserver." A surname of Jupiter. A sacellum, or shrine, of Jupiter Conservator was built by Domitian on the Capitoline, on the site of the house of the porter who had rescued him when the Vitellians stormed the Capitol in 69 CE. After Domitian became emperor, he erected a large temple to Jupiter Custos which may have replaced the earlier shrine. Cp. Conservatrix, Servator, Soter.
