GURGURES MONTES a range of mountains. in Central Italy, known only from a passage in Varro, who tells us that it was the custom to drive the mules which were fed in large herds in the Rosei Campi near Reate, into these lofty mountains ( “in Gurgures altos montes,” Varr. R. R. 2.1.16) for their summer pasturage. It is evident that they were a portion of the central and highest ranges of the Apennines, but the particular mountains meant cannot be identified.
