ch is never brought into connection with the foundation of Rome, may be a good deal later than the first settlement on the Palatine. He further believes that the combination of mundus and Roma quadrata was repeated in the forum in the lapis niger, which was not merely an altar of the gods of the underworld, but a record of the place on which the city was founded; and he thus explains Plutarch's statement that it was situated in the Comitium, and localises here (and not on the Palatine) the distribution of suffimenta ad Romam quadratam in 204 A.D. The identification or juxtaposition of the mundus and Roma quadrata, and the placing of the latter here, will not square with any of the possible theories in regard to the site of the temple of Apollo (Fest. 258), and it may be a late antiquarian invention. For an attempt to parallel with the Palatine mundus certain underground tholoi (at Piperno, Circeii, etc.), see AJA 1914, 302-320. See JRS 1912, 25-33; 1914, 225, 226; DAP 2. xi. 192-194.
