AMBURBIA, or Ampursare Sacrum, in Antiquity, a Religious Feast, or Ceremony, practiced among the Romans, wherein they made Processions around their City. The Word is composed of ambio, I go round; or of amb, or ambit, an ancient Preposition, signifying around, and urbs, City. Hence, also, we have Amburbiales Victime, the Victims carried along in the Procession; and afterwards sacrificed. Scaliger, in his Notes on Festus, maintains the Amburbia to be the same with Ambarvalia. See AMBARVALIA.
