LARES QUERQUETULANI, SACELLUM
a shrine placed by Varro on the
Esquiline (LL v. 49
), although MONS QUERQUETULANUS
(q.v.) is said to
have been an early name for the Caelian, and the PORTA QUERQUETULANA
(q.v.) was probably on that hill. This shrine is otherwise unknown,
but was evidently not an aedes sacra but rather one of the shrines
erected at the compita (WR 171 ; HJ 221-222; Rosch. ii. 1871
; Gilb. ii.
, 63 for an elaborate but fanciful explanation of this name and
location of the shrine).
