written sacer clivus in the three passages in which it occurs at all (Hor. Carm. iv. 2. 35; Mart. i. 70. 5; iv. 78. 7), another name, apparently confined to poetry, for the SACRA VIA (q.v.) proper, that is, the ascent from the forum to the summa Sacra via. It is often stated that this was also the name of the street that branched off from the summa Sacra via and ascended the Palatine (CLIVUS PALATINUS, q.v.), but probably without reason (HJ 21, 105; HC 250; Richter 160; Gilb. iii. 423; CR 1902, 336; Mitt. 1902, 97; 1905, 119).
