Romulus, after founding/building the Palatine, also founded the Capitoline, which is the head of the city; in it he also placed the Palladium, having taken it from the city of Sylva. It was called Satureion at first, but later Capitoline from the visible head of a freshly-slaughtered body buried in the foundations in the earth.
