alii ... crepitus ventris pro numinibus habendos esse docuerunt.

"others (among the Egyptians) teach that intestinal noise (Latin: crepitus ventris) ought to be regarded as a god."

Roman Mythology, Crepitus

Crepitus is an alleged Roman god of flatulence. It is unlikely that Crepitus was ever actually worshiped. The only ancient source for the claim that such a god was ever worshiped comes from Christian satire. The name Crepitus standing alone would be an inadequate and unlikely name for such a god in Latin. The god appears, however, in a number of important works of French literature.
