Temple of Quirinus
Rest of title: conditore et illius templo in monte Quirinali hodie iuxta Aedem S. Vitalis. Depicted here is a temple that was on Monte Quirinale, the site of the original Sabine settlement. The Sabines united with the Palatine community to form Rome. A temple to the god Quirinal may have been erected around 400 BC, but was dedicated in 293 BC. By the late Republic, Quirinal was identified with Romulus, even sharing the same festival. The temple was located near the site of the Church of Saint Vitale.
On the verso of this leaf is text in three languages with the page title in Italian: Di Romolo e del Suo Tempio
