a part of the Caelian hill (Varro, LL v. 46), appearing as Caeliculus or Caeliculum in Cicero (de Har. Resp. 32), and probably the Caelius minor of Martial (xii. 18. 6). The vicus Capitis Africae, the modern via Claudia, seems to have divided the hill into two sections, and the smaller, eastern, section was presumably the Caeliolus. This is now marked by the church of SS. Quattro Coronati (Gilb. ii. 32; HJ223; BC 1914, 353; Eranos, 1923, 55).
