AUGURATORIUM

an augural area on the Palatine, mentioned only in the Regionary Catalogue and Mirabilia (28). It may have marked the spot where legend said that Romulus took the auspices, or it may be identical with the CURIA SALIORUM (q.v.). It is possible that an inscription (CIL vi. 976), recording the restoration of an auguratorium by Hadrian, may belong to the structure on the Palatine, which a recent theory identifies with a rectangular foundation of this period between the temple of Cybele and the domus Augusti (Liviae) (HJ 44-45; BC 1914, 99; DAP 2. xii. 147-175).
