Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, META ROMULI (search)
SCIPIONIS (q.v.). The name meta Romuli was probably given to this monument because the pyramid of CESTIUS (q.v.) had in some way come to be called meta Remi. It is described as larger than the pyramid of Cestius and of great beauty. From its marble slabs were made in the tenth century the pavement of the Paradiso of S. Peter's and the steps of the basilica. It stood at the intersection of the Via Cornelia and the Via Triumphalis, on the east side of the latter (DAP cit. 383-387), and its southern part was removed when Alexander VI constructed the Borgo Nuovo in 1499 (LS i. 126). The rest stood until 1518 at least (LS i. 161, 186-189). The monument therefore covered the Borgo Nuovo and the Via di porta Castello at their intersection (besides the literature already cited, see Mon. L. i. 525; BC 1877, 188; 908, 26-30 ; 1914, 395-396; Jord. ii. 405-406; HJ 659; Becker, Top. 662. It may be seen in various mediaeval and early Renaissance views of Rome (LR 560, fig. 214; Cod. Esc. 7v, 8) ).
