The Circus Flora in Sallustio. The Horti Sallustiani was a luxurious garden in ancient Rome that spread over the Pincio and Quirinal Hills. What remains is an obelisk that is now above the Spanish Steps, the vestibule in the Piazza Sallustion, and what has been referred to as the "supposed circus of Flora". One source suggests that there was no Circus of Flora, but there were Games of Flora which were held in the Circus Maximus.
