a shrine of Caca mentioned twice in extant literature (Serv. ad Aen. viii. 190: hunc (Cacum) soror sua eiusdem nominis prodidit; unde etiam sacellum meruit in quo ei per virgines Vestae sacrificabatur (vulg.), ei pervigili igne sicut Vestae (F)=Mythog. Vatic. ii. 153; iii. 13; Lact. Inst. i. 20. 36: colitur et Caca quae Herculi fecit indicium de furto boum). It is supposed to have stood on the south-west corner of the Palatine near the SCALAE CACI (q.v.), but no trace of it has been found. For a discussion of Caca and the topographical questions involved, see Rosch. i. 842-843; RE iii. 1164; WR 144; De Sanctis, Storia dei Romani ii. 524-525; University of Michigan Studies iv. 234; Mitt. 1895, 163 ; Gilb. i. 51.
