festum apud Athenienses, Suidas. Vide Castellanum, de festis Graecorum p. 217. Hôc festô minervae simulacrum lavabatur, ude nomen, ac publice privatimque opera dabatur, ne inchoatô festô, neceum peratô; quidquam aggrederentur; id enim infaustum habbatur, Xenophon. de reditu Alcib. quemadmodum apud Romanos, motis necdum an cilibus, eadem superstitio obtinuit: nisi quod Plynteriorum dies unus saltem erat infaustus, ancilia semel mota ante 30. diem non condebantur, Polyb. l. 23. Celebrantur autem Plynteria d. 24. Thargelionis, secundum Petitum, vel 25. secundum alios. Vide Rossaeum, Archaeol. Attica l. 2. c. 10. uti de more Gentilium simulacra Numinum lavandi, hic non unô locô: inprimis supra voce Pecten.
