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=32482; i2. p. 335 ; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921, 117). To this temple allusion is doubtless made in Livy (xxii. I. 18: unde Feroniae donum daretur). Its exact site and history are unknown (HJ 483; RE vi. 2218).
