a gate in the Servian wall which is mentioned only once (Fest. 255: Quirinalis porta dicta sive quod ea in collem Quirinalem itur seu quod proxime eam est Quirini sacellum). The gate was probably just north of the temple of QUIRINUS (q.v.), where an ancient street, corresponding to the modern Via delle quattro Fontane, crossed the line of the wall (Jord. i. I. 221; HJ 399, 411; RhM 1894, 411; Hermes, 1891, 141-144; BC 1914, 80). On this site remains of steps have been found which may have belonged to the approach to the gate (BC 2892, 271-275, pi. xv.; Mitt. 1893, 303-304).
