Amburbium

|

By Morningbird

Amburbium was a city-wide ritual in ancient Rome during times of great distress. During this time everything in the city was cleansed and purified.

There was a great procession three times around the city led by priests after which a hog, a ram, and a bull were sacrificed.

Some sources say that this ritual was traditionally performed in the middle of February.
