A surname of Jupiter at Praeneste. After the conquest of that town in 376 BCE, T. Quinctius brought his statue to the capitol at Rome, where it was placed between the chapels of Jupiter and Minerva.1 According to Cicero,2 he was identical with Jupiter Urius (i.e. the sender of favorable wind), of the Greeks.
