The Roman festival of Larentalia was held on 23 December but was ordered to be observed twice a year by Augustus; by some supposed to be in honour of the Lares, a kind of domestic genii, or divinities, worshipped in houses, and esteemed the guardians and protectors of families, supposed to reside in chimney-corners.[1] Others have attributed this feast in honour of Acca Larentia, the nurse of Romulus and Remus, and wife of Faustulus.[2]

During this festival, offerings were made to the dead, usually at altars dedicated to Acca Larentia.[3] A sacrifice was typically offered on the spot where Acca Larentia is believed to have vanished.[4] Larentalia was part of a series of ancient Roman festivals and holidays celebrating the end of the old year and the start of the new.[5]
