Supplicatio a solemn thanksgiving or supplication to the gods among the ancient Romans, on which occasion the temples were thrown open, and the statues of the gods carried on couches through the public streets that they might receive the prayers of the people. A supplicatio was appointed by the senate when a victory had been gained, or in times of public danger and distress.
