by Micha F. Lindemans
An ancient Roman goddess, who was perhaps a spirit of darkness. Her festival, the Furrinalia, continued to be observed on July 25 in later Roman times, despite the fact that her nature had been forgotten. Her priest was called the flamen Furrinalis.

It was in the grove of Furrina that Gaius Sempronius Gracchus ordered his slave to kill him.
