The temple was sited in the saddle of ground “inter duos lucos”, between two sacred groves, one on the Arx and one on the Capitolium (the two peaks of the Capitoline Hill). The statue of the god stood next to a statue of a goat. In the same area was also situated the Asylum, where, legend has it, Romulus extended hospitality to fugitives from other parts of the Latium region, in order to populate the new city which he founded, with political refugees, escaped slaves, Latins and Etruscans, and, as Florus has it, Phrygians and Arcadians.
