A hill at Rome, added to the city by Servius Tullius (Liv.i.
). Numa, indeed, had a house upon this mountain, but it was not considered a part of
the city until enclosed within the Tullian wall. The temple of Romulus Quirinus, from which it
derived its name, was built by Numa, but afterward reconstructed with greater
magnificence by Papirius Cursor, the dictator (Liv.x. 46
). It was
the centre of the district called Alta Semita under Augustus. See Roma
