LEPINUS MONS is the name given by Columella (10.131), the only author in whom the name is found, to a mountain near Signia in Latium, probably one of the underfalls or offshoots of the great mass of the Volscian Apennines. The name of Montes Lepini is frequently applied by modern geographers to the whole of the lofty mountain group which separates the valley of the Sacco from the Pontine Marshes [LATIUM] ; but there is no ancient authority for this.
