CLIVUS MAMURI

a street mentioned only in mediaeval documents (LP xlii. 6; Acta S. Susan. 11 (vicum), Aug. p. 632 ; BC 1914, 373), which probably took its name from the statua Mamuri (Not. Reg. VI). This, the statue of Mamurius Veturius, the legendary maker of the ancilia (Fest. 131; Ov. Fast. iii. 382-392 ; Plut. Numa 13 ; WR 147, 558), was probably close to the temple of Quirinus and the CURIA SALIORUM (q.v.) and the street may have run south-east from the Alta Semita (HJ 410; Gilb. i. 295 ; iii. 370 ; RhM 1894, 405, 417).
