Eth. SEPTEM PAGI (Ἑπτὰ Πάγοι), was the name given to a district close to Rome, but on the right bank of the Tiber, which according to tradition had originally formed part of the territory of the Veientes, but was ceded by them to the Romans as early as the reign of Romulus. (Dionys. A. R. 2.55; Plut. Rom. 25.) According to the authorities followed by Dionysius it was again surrendered to the Etruscans by the treaty concluded with Porsena, but was shortly after restored by that monarch to the Romans. (Dionys. A. R. 5.31, 36.) Livy mentions the same circumstances, but without giving the name of the district. (Liv. 2.13, 15.) It is evident, however, that this was a well-known appellation, but we are unable to fix its boundaries more definitely.
