BONA DEA

a shrine of Bona Dea, which stood a little north of the present church of S. Cecilia in Trastevere, known only from certain inscriptions found in the neighbourhood. One (CIL vi. 65) records the restoration of a sacrum Bonae Deae by M. Vettius Bolanus. consul c. 69 A.D. (cf. BALINEUM BOLANI); another (67) the erection of a simulacrum in tutelam insulae Bolani, and the gift of an aedes to Bona Dea restituta or restitutrix, by a certain Cladus who also made another present of some kind to the goddess (CIL vi. 66). Nothing further is known of this shrine (cf. CIL vi. 75; BC 1905, 349; NS 1905, 270; HJ 639-640; RE iii. 690; Gilb. ii. 177; iii. 445).
