This chapter analyzes literary texts, giving the references to the foreign character of the Aventine hill. It looks at the texts describing the history of religion and examines whether the term alienation in reference is available on the city of Rome area. The chapter briefly explains the meaning of pomerium and the most important religious and political structure of Roman frontier. The pomerium was extended by the expansion of the Roman territory. The chapter also analyzes some Roman legends, the marginal role of the Aventine and the strangeness of some places of worship and shrines on the hill. It explores foreign elements in antiquarian descriptions of the city's ritual. The original text of the chapter is in German.
