Γάβιοι). A town in Latium, on the Lacus Gabinus between Rome and Praenesté, a colony from Alba Longa; and the place, according to tradition, where Romulus and Remus were brought up. It was taken by Tarquinius Superbus by stratagem (Livy, i. 53) and was in ruins in the time of Augustus. In its neighbourhood are the stone quarries from which a part of Rome was built. The modern name is Castiglione.
