Ancient city on a territory corresponding now to the district of FRATTOCCHIE part of the city of Marino

According to tradition, it was a colony of Alba Longa, after the destruction of which it inherited its functions regarding religious cults that continued here

Tiberius (14/37) established the cult of the Gens Iulia in a SACRARIUM, and maybe he even introduced games in honor of Augustus for which the THEATER and the CIRCUS were built

All it remains of the circus are only some traces of the carceres (starting gates). Archaeologists figured it measured 337.50 x 68.60 m (1,108 x 225 feet)
