(p.231) Quirinal, Viminal, and the Via Lata
Rome and Environs

University of California Press

This chapter explains that the sixth Augustan region is comprised by the Quirinal and the Viminal, and notes that the configuration of the streets in the region follows the lay of the land. The Quirinal included several peaks: Collis Latiaris, Collis Mucialis, Collis Salutaris, and Collis Quirinalis. The chapter shows that the first inhabitants of the Quirinal were the Sabines under Titus Tatius, who were later absorbed into the Latin city. It details that during the Republic the Viminal was essentially a residential quarter, containing almost no sanctuaries or public monuments. The chapter describes the very few ancient remains visible at Via Lata.
