Faliforia: The festive show for the renaissance forces of nature.
Faliforia was a festive procession, part of the Dionysiac Celebrations. It took place in the month of Poseidon. The phallus, a symbol of fertility and vegetation, preceded the procession. Those who followed were disguised as Selenus, Satyrs and Bacchae. They held in their hands thyros, phalluses, craters with new wine, danced and sang phallic songs.
