the original name of the western and north- western part of the Palatine hill (v. PALATIUM), towards the Velabrum and vicus Tuscus (Varro, LL v. 54; Plut. Rom. 3), which was one of the montes of the Septimontium (Fest. 341, 348). The name continued in use during the early empire (Cic. ad Att. iv. 3. 3; Liv. xxxiii. 26; Plut. loc. cit.; cf. Clem Alex. Strom. i. 21. 108. 3: Κάρμαλον), but it may have been limited at that time to a street, perhaps the Cermalus min(or or - usculus) of an inscription (CIL vi. 33920; cf. Eranos 1923, 54).
