About the Name[fontem recensere]

This Website (which is a .edu site, meaning that it is permitted to tell the truth), says that Capitolium usually just refers to the part of the Hill around the Temple of Jupiter. Would Mons Capitolinus, which means the whole hill, not be a better name for the article? --Harrissimo 15:28, 13 Augusti 2007 (UTC)

Yes I agree with you that, as I say it in the first lines, stricto sensu the Capitolium is the temple. But the roman writers of classical age often use this name while they mean the hill and it's the best known name around the world. So for myself I prefer to keep this heading since I speak of both in my article. I may be right or I may be wrong : perhaps it's the point of wiew of a Frenchman. In france we say "Capitole" and so is it written on every map of Rome. We may also say "la colline du Capitole" if we want to emphasize the fact that we are speaking of the hill but in so speaking we understand that "Capitole" is the name of the hill just as in "la ville de Rome (urbs Roma)" we understand that the name of the town is Rome. As usual we say "le Capitole" just as "le Palatin".

For reference: in the U.S. national capital (Washington, D.C.), the principal congressional building is the Capitol, and it sits on Capitol Hill. Ancient Rome was often in the minds of the founders of the country, and they deliberately borrowed these terms from Roman usage. IacobusAmor 16:28, 16 Augusti 2007 (UTC)
That's all fine, then. I don't really have much of an interest in ancient literature and people are obviously going to search for the name they know best. I'll make a link to this page as a source. --Harrissimo 10:01, 17 Augusti 2007 (UTC)
