Narrative

in Rymill Bay off Romulus Glacier, Fallières Coast, were surveyed by BGLE in 1936 (Stephenson, 1940, map facing p.232). The name Chasm Island was applied descriptively by RARE to the larger of the two rocks (Nichols, 1955, p.17). The rocks were resurveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island", 1948-49, and named Tiber Rocks after the river of Rome, in association with Romulus Glacier and Remus Glacier (q.v.) (APC, 1955, p.21; DCS 601 sheet 68 66, 1955).
