In 1546 diggers in the Roman Forum uncovered monumental inscriptions listing dates of kings, consuls, and military victors, from the legendary founding of Rome in 753 BCE up to the end of the republic. Moved to the Capitoline Hill, the inscriptions became known as the Fast Capitolini. (Fastus—plural, fasti—in this context means a calendar, listing such items as festivals or magistrates then in office.) A monk called Onofrio Panvinio prepared a scholarly edition of the find, Fasti et triumphi Romani (1557). Panvinio also put together a sort of companion to the Fasti, Reipublicae Romanae commentariorum libre tres (Three Books of Commentaries on the Roman Republic). [FN 50]
