a name occurring in one inscription (CIL i². 591=vi.
3823=31577) on a travertine cippus that was found in situ behind the
tribune of the church of S. Vito on the Esquiline. This inscription

was then still organised as a pagus. Montanus is usually explained as
equivalent to Esquilinus (HJ 265, and references there cited). Cf. also
