a column in the forum holitorium, mentioned only by Festus (118), who says that it was so called quod ibi infantes lacte alendos deferebant (cf. also AEDES PIETATIS IN FORO HOLITORIO). Its base may have been adorned with reliefs which suggested or bore out its name (Eranos, 1923, 38-40; cf. HJ 510).
