Robigo and Robigus were two divinities, the first feminine, the second masculine, which watched over the growing of wheat and averted blight (robigo in Latin). A festival was celebrated in their honour each year in Rome on 25 April. There was a wood sacred to them five miles north of Rome, on the Via Clodia, beyond the Milvian bridge.
