A festival celebrated annually in honour of Liber, the Italian Bacchus, and not to be confounded with the Greek Dionysia. It took place on the 17th of March. It was on this day that boys who assumed the toga virilis (see Toga) marched in procession to the Capitol, where they made an offering of cakes (liba). See Varr. L. L. vi. 4; Marquardt, Staatsverwaltung, iii. 363; and the article Dionysus.
