TIBURTIUS COLLIS

a name which appears to have been given at a late date to the Quirinal hill, and occurs only in an emended passage in Lydus (de mens. iv. 155, ed. Bekk. 118:τιβο[ύρτιον]; cf. Wissowa, Ges. Abh. 233; HJ 229). Like PRAENESTIUS COLLIS (q.v.) the name is derived from that of a gate (Porta Tiburtina) in the Aurelian wall, and was probably the invention of some antiquarian.
