LUCUS STIMULAE a grove sacred to Stimula, a deity who seems afterwards to have been confused with Semele Livy gives the form Similae. (Ov. Fast. vi. 503: lucus erat dubium Semelae Stimulaeve; CIL vi. 9897: ab luco Semeles; Rosch. ii. 226-227). The grove was the scene of the Bacchanalian orgies in B.C., and lay near the Tiber and the Aventine (Liv. xxxix. 12, 13; Ov. Fast. vi. 518; Schol. Iuv. 2. 3), probably near the foot of the south-west slope of the hill.
