Fast for Ceres

October 4

(Roman) Ancient: IV Non. Oct.
This is similar to the fast (Lat., ieiunium) for Demeter on the second day of the Thesmophoria (c. Oct. 25), on which there was a fast (Grk., nesteia) for Demeter. The following day (Oct. 5) the Mundus Cereris (World of Ceres), a vaulted ritual pit, is opened, which occurs on only three days (see Aug. 24). [SFR 190–1]
