Anagogia

Anagogia a feast held by the people of Eryx, in Sicily, to commemorate, as they alleged, the departure of Venus from them to Libya. They said that the pigeons, which abounded in that country, disappeared at that time, and accompanied the goddess in her journey. After nine days they returned, when the people celebrated another feast, which they termed Catagogia, in honor of the return of the goddess.
