There is a wide literature on collegia in the Roman world, for this reason this paper will focus on the specific case of the aquatores Feronienses, an association known only in Aquileia. The association is well-documented by some inscriptions and two acroterial sculptures that belongs to its funerary monument. These finds, discovered in the 19th century in the north-east suburbium of Aquileia, are partly lost and partly preserved in the National Museum of Aquileia and in the Civic Museum of Trieste. Furthermore, along with other inscriptions, these items testify the significant presence of the Italic goddess Feronia in the north-Adriatic city. This paper wants to make a point about previously knowledge and studies on this topic and also to clarify and possibly to add something new to the complex interpretative picture delined about the aquatores.
