According to Roman mythology, the Palatine Hill was the location of the cave, known as the Lupercal, where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf that kept them alive.  Rome has its origins on the Palatine.  Recent excavations show that people have lived there since approximately 1000 BC.  According to Livy, after the immigration of the Sabines and the Albans to Rome, the original Romans lived on the Palatine.  Many affluent Romans of the Republican period (510 to 44 BC) had their residences there.  During the Empire (27 BC to 476) several emperors resided there.  The ruins of the palaces of Augustus (63 to 14 BC), Tiberius (42 to 37 BC) and Domitian (51 – 96) can still be seen.  One building, believed to be the residence of Livia (58 to 29 BC), the wife of Augustus, is currently undergoing renovation.  Situated near to the house of Livia is the temple of Cybele.  Behind this structure, cut into the side of the hill, is the so-called House of Tiberius.  Overlooking the Forum Romanum is the Flavian Palace which was built largely during the reign of the Flavian dynasty (69 – 96), Vespasian, Titus and Domitian.  This palace, which was extended and modified by several emperors, extends across the Palatine Hill and looks out over the Circus Maximus.  The building of the greater part the palace visible from the Circus was undertaken in the reign of the emperor Septimius Severus (146 to 211).  Immediately adjacent to the palace of Severus is the Hippodrome of Domitian.  This is a structure which has the appearance of a Roman Circus but is too small to accommodate chariots.  While it is certain that during the Severan period it was used for sporting events,  it was most likely originally built as a garden shaped like a stadium.
