Circeii received a Latin colony ca. 390 B.C. The remains on the site include an enclosure wall built in polygonal masonry. "Circeii 1" refers to the earlier Roman colony founded at the eastern side of Monte Circeo. The settlement eventually moved to the western side of the peninsula.

It seems that Circeii need some disambiguation (currently "Circeii 1" and "Circeii 2"). I am guessing that Circeii 1 refers to the polygonal enceinte on the promontory and Circeii 2 to the Roman colony. How best to clarify?

Jeff: though I don't know the sites myself, that's how I read things too, based on what's said in BAtlas, its directory, Smith (who is easy to get at online), and the Neue Pauly. I'd suggest checking out the place resources for each and adding something to each in the description field that clarifies. The Wikipedia article at seems to have it right (at least from what I can gather at this distance). Adding a reference to it from both of the entries in Pleiades would help users understand what's going on. What do you think?

Just ran into this one today. Surely it should be handled like the other places (e.g., Alexandria) that share a name and not via a number in the title. Happy to submit the change, if that's agreeable.
