The god of the Volturnus river in Campania that runs by the site of ancient Capua. On August 27, people celebrated the festival of the Volturnia.1 Volturnus had his own priest or flamen, but very little is known of the nature of this ancient cult. He is the brother of Fontus.2

Volturnus may also be another name for the Tiber (Tiberinus).
