Stator, a Roman surname of Jupiter, given because he stayed the Romans in their flight before the Sabines. Romulus vowed to erect a temple in his honor, but contented himself with indicating the spot where it should stand. M. Attilius repeated that vow at a later day, and the senate thereupon caused the temple to be built in the tenth region (Livy, 1, 12). See Anthon, Classical Dict. s.v.; Vollmer, Wörterb. p. d.
