The Temple of Quirinus was located near the Capitolium Vetus. The temple was built ex manubiis by Lucius Papirius Cursor in 293 B.C., fulfilling the vow made by his father in 325 B.C. Tradition holds that the republican-period temple was sited on an even earlier altar dedicated by the Sabines. The topography and location of the temple are both matters of significant debate.

Writing in LTUR, Filippo Coarelli assesses the likely position of the sanctuary. Based on archaeological remains and epigraphic evidence documented by Rodolfo Lanciani, Coarelli suggests that the temple was most likely located to the east of the current Via delle Quattro Fontane.
