Not stated. Aricia is a Greek town, a location holy to Diana (equated with Artemis), near Rome. However, in literary works there is tradition, perhaps mistaken, placing a female Aricia as a consort of Hippolytus. Aricia is also a female character in Jean Racine's Phèdre, a play first performed in 1677. It seems safe to assume Aricia as used by Savigny was regarded as female by him and contemporaries.
