FA´BIA a. town of Latium on the Alban Hills, known to us only from the mention, by Pliny, of the “Fabienses in Monte Albano” (3.5. s. 9). It is at least a plausible conjecture, that they occupied the site of the modern village of Rocca di Papa, high up on the Alban Mount, and on the road which led from the lake to the temple of Jupiter, on the highest summit. (Gell, Top. of Rome, p. 373; Nibby, Dintorni, vol. iii. p. 20.)
