Redicŭlus

A Roman deity who got his name from the belief that he induced Hannibal, when near the gates of Rome after his victory at Cannae, to return (redire) southward. On the Appian Way near the second mile-stone from the city was the Campus Rediculi; and the god had also a temple near the Porta Capena. He was probably one of the Lares of the city of Rome. See Festus, p. 282.
