THE HISTORIC CITY OF ROME

” The historic city of Rome, pagan before it was Christian,
was built upon Seven Hills; the Palatine, Crelian, Aventine,
Viminal, Quirinal, Esquiline, and the Capitol. In Latin
times it was called Urbs Septicollis. Some old authors
speak of” Valentia” as a secret name for Rome.

The “Bijou Notes and Queries,” vol. xiv., p. 235, says that
the 7 days of the week have all been used as sacred days;
Sunday by Christians; Monday by the Greeks; Tuesday by
the Persians; Wednesday by the Assyrians; Thursday by the
Egyptians; Friday by the Turks; and Saturday by the Jews.”
