Today was a festival of Fortuna Muliebris. This temple of Fortuna Muliebris was dedicated on 6 July. This cult was significant to women who contributed a second statue of the goddess at their own expense and that this statue on two occasions uttered the words, ‘you have conformed to the holy law, married women, in giving me’. The women, at the advice of their priestess, then established that no woman who had married a second time should touch or garland the statue and that only newly married women should pay worship to the goddess.
