The Temple of Jupiter Stator was a temple of Ancient Rome named after the god Jupiter in his form of Jupiter Stator (Jupiter the stayer). Together with the temple of Juno Regina (Juno in the form of "Queen Juno") and the enclosing Porticus Metelli (later rebuilt as the Porticus Octaviae), it was built by Q. Caecilius Metellus Macedonicus after his triumph in 146 BC. It is referred to as aedes Iovis Metellina and aedes Metelli. It was inside the porticus Metelli, close to the circus Flaminius, and its exact site is known to have been beneath the church of Santa Maria in Campitelli. The Temple of Juno Regina was just west of this, on the opposite side of the Via della Tribuna di Campitelli.
