The Oven-Goddess

Lactantius, The Divine Institutes, Books I-VII. Translated by Sister Mary Francis McDonald, O.P. (1964; rpt. Washington: The Catholic University Press of America, 2008), p. 79 (1.20.35):
Who does not laugh at the Oven-Goddess Forma or, rather, at those learned men who perform the Fornacalian celebrations?
Forma makes no sense and should be deleted here. See the Latin:
quis non rideat Fornacem deam vel potius doctos viros celebrandis Fornacalibus operari?
Another misprint on p. 95: for Whey read When.
