"The Roman pantheon included a god whose only function was to rule over
mildew. His name was Robigas, Each year on April 25, a procession wound through
the streets of Rome to Robigus' sacred grove, where a red puppy was sacrificed
in his name. The Romans hoped the sacrifice would appease the mildew god's
hunger for their crops."
