p207 Lucus Feroniae in Campo Martio

Article on p207 of

Samuel Ball Platner (as completed and revised by Thomas Ashby):
A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome,
London: Oxford University Press, 1929.


Feronia, Lucus in Campo Martio: a grove of the goddess Feronia, known from one inscription that was found near the porta Salaria (NS 1905, 15: Epigono Volusiano operi(s) exactori ab luco Feroniae). In or beside this grove there must have been a temple of the goddess, whose festival occurred on 13th Nov. (Fast. Arval. ad Id. Nov.: Feroniae in [ca]mp(o); cf. CIL VI.2295=32483; I2 p335; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 117). To this temple allusion is doubtless made in Livy (XXII.1.18: unde Feroniae donum daretur). Its exact site and history are unknown (HJ 483; RE VI.2218).
