A shrine in the Forum Romanum adjacent to the Republican comitium, recognizable by the distinctive black paving stones that covered it in the later republican period. The shrine has been associated, in tradition, with the tomb of Romulus and/or of Faustulus. Giacomo Boni excavated the site between 1899 and 1905.
