These are Ghosts the live in chasms and crevasses of ancient Roman beliefs. They are appeased by offerings that are placed at places where they live between the 13th and 21st of February each year. Suitable offerings include food and wine. On the 9th, 11th and 13th of May, the father of the family would fill his mouth with seeds and spit them out saying;
“With these beans I ransom me and mine. Ancestral Ghosts be gone!”
