XXXIV. (215) There is, besides all these, another Festival{38}{#de 26:1.} sacred to God, and a solemn assembly on the day of the festival which they call castallus, {39}{castallus is interpreted “a basket with a pointed bottom.”} from the event that takes place in it, as we shall show presently. Now that this festival is not in the same rank, nor of the same importance with the other festivals, is plain from many considerations. For, first of all, it is not one to be observed by the whole population of the nation as each of the others is. Secondly, none of the things that are brought or offered are laid upon the altar as holy, or committed to the unextinguishable and holy fire. Thirdly, the very number of days which are to be observed in the festival are not expressly stated.
