Abundantia

Abundantia goddess of good fortune, abundance and prosperity.

Within Roman Mythology, the figure of Abundantia (also known as Annona) was considered to be only a minor deity: the personification of luck, abundance and prosperity, and was also the guardian of the cornucopia – the horn of plenty. It was with this that she distributed food and money. The main version of the origin of the cornucopia is similar in both the Greek and the Roman mythology, in which the king of the gods, having accidentally broken the horn of the mystical goat in play, promised that the horn would never run empty the fruits of her desire. The horn was then later to be passed into the keeping of Abundantia.

While there are few temples or signs of worship for Abudantia to be found within Rome, she has also been described in the past as ‘the beautiful maiden of success’,
and as such is largely featured in art. Often portrayed as holding the cornicopia and sheaves of corn, while allowing the contents to fall to the ground, Abundantia’s form has graced Roman coins in ages past.

Bellona

“Bellona”,
by Rembrandt

From
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bellona
was an Ancient Roman war goddess. She is believed to be one of the numinous gods
of the Romans (without a particular mythology and possibly of Etruscan origin),
and is supposed by many to have been the Romans’ original war deity, predating
the identification of Mars with Ares. She accompanied Mars into battle and is
taken variously as his sister, wife or daughter. Her festival was celebrated on
June 3. She is also (as at her temple in Ostia) syncreted with Magna Mater

Bellona’s
attribute is a sword and she is depicted wearing a helmet and armed with a spear
and a torch.

Politically,
all Senate meetings relating to foreign war were conducted in the Templum Bellonae
(Temple of Bellona) on the Collis Capitolinus outside the pomerium.

Bellona’s
festival was celebrated on June 3.

Bona
Dea

From
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bona
Dea was the perpetually virginal goddess, associated with virginity and fertility
in women. She was also associated with healing, with the sick being tended to
in her temple garden with medicinal herbs. She was regarded with great reverence
by lower-class citizens, slaves and women; who went to her seeking aid in sickness
or for fertility.

Bona
Dea was invoked for healing and for freedom from slavery; many of her worshippers
were freed slaves and plebeians, and many were women seeking aid in sickness or
for fertility.

She
was worshipped in a temple on the Aventine Hill, but her secret rites were performed
in the home of a prominent Roman magistrate. The rites were held on December 4,
and only included women. Even paintings or drawings of men or male animals were
forbidden, along with the words “wine” and “myrtle” because
she had once been beaten by Faunus with a myrtle stick after she got drunk. The
rites were conducted annually by the wife of the senior magistrate present in
Rome and were assisted by the Vestal Virgins. Very little is known about the ceremony,
but the worship seems to have been agricultural in origin. The most famous event
to do with this festival was its desecration by Publius Clodius in 62 BC by secretly
attending the ceremony at the house of the pontifex maximus, Julius Caesar. During
the ensuing trial, Clodius’ alibi was destroyed by Cicero, which caused the animosity
that would define their relationship from then on.

Bona
Dea is usually depicted sitting on a throne, holding a cornucopia. The snake is
her attribute, a symbol of healing, and consecrated snakes were kept in her temple
at Rome, indicating her phallic nature. Her image frequently occurred on ancient
Roman coins.

Cardea

Cloacina

Cloacina ( was the goddess who presided over the Cloaca Maxima, the system of sewers
in Rome. The Cloaca Maxima was a sewer said to be begun by Tarquinius Priscus
and finished by Tarquinius Superbus. Titus Tatius, who reigned with Romulus, erected
a statue to her. As well as
controlling sewers, she was also a protector of sexual intercourse in marriage.
Regardless of her original source, she later became identified with Venus.

Worship

Cloacina was worshipped as an aspect of Venus at the small Shrine of Venus Cloacina, situated before the Basilica Aemilia on the Roman Forum and directly above the Cloaca Maxima. Some Roman coins had images of Cloacina or her shrine on them. Cloacina was also worshipped with rhymed prayer.

Consus

From
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Consus was the protector of grains and (subterranean) storage bins (silos), and as such was represented by a corn seed.

His altar was placed beneath the ground (or simply covered with earth, which was swept off at his festival) near the Circus Maximus in Rome.

Mule or horse races were the main event of the festival because the mule and the horse were Consus’ sacred animals. Horses and mules were crowned with chaplets of flowers, and forbidden to work.

Shortly after his own festivals the ones for Ops, the Opiconsivia or Opalia, were held every August 25 and December 19, these being the periods respectively of the reaping and the seeding of crops.

Consus also became a god associated with secret conferences, perhaps due to a common misinterpretation of his name. The Latins (Romans) associated Consus’ name with
consilium (“councils, synagogues, assemblies; place where councils assemble”).
This word should not be confused with “counsel” (“advice”).
It in fact expresses the idea of “sitting together” (consentes), “being
together” (Constitution-sum) or perhaps “called together, conclaimed” (Constitution-calare).
The connection of Consus with these secret councils is attested by Servius (En.
8:636): Consus autem deus est consiliorum (“Consus is however the god of
councils”).

As
such, it seems that Consus was a member of the council of the Di Consentes (“Council
of the Gods”) formed by six gods and six goddesses which assembled in order
to assist Jupiter in making great decisions such as destroying Troy or Atlantis
with a Flood, etc.. This tradition is due to the Etruscans, but is also widely
attested in Greece as well, for instance, in Homer. It has to do with the Twelve
Olympians of the Greek myths, and their twelve gods are the same as the ones of
the Romans.

Consus was
often called Neptunus Equestris (“Equestrian Neptune”). So, his
connection with the Greek Poseidon (Neptune) can hardly be denied. Poseidon
was also associated with horses and horse racing, a connection which is reminiscent
of Atlantis (founded by Poseidon) and its magnificent hippodromes described
by Plato in his Critias. According to tradition, it was in the course of the
Consualia and its horse races that the Romans kidnapped the Sabine women which
they married in order to found their own nation.

Mars

Mars,
painting by Diego Velazquez.

From
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mars
was the Roman warrior god, the son of Juno and Jupiter, husband of Bellona, and
the lover of Venus. He was the most prominent of the military gods that were worshipped
by the Roman legions. The martial Romans considered him second in importance only
to Jupiter. His festivals were held in March (named for him) and October.

Initially Mars was a Roman god of
fertility and vegetation and a protector of cattle, fields and boundaries. Mars later became associated with
battle as the growing Roman Empire began to expand, and he came to be identified
with the Greek god Ares. Unlike his Greek counterpart, Mars was generally revered
and rivaled Jupiter as the most honoured god. He was also the tutelary god of
the city of Rome. As he was regarded as the legendary father of Rome’s founder,
Romulus, it was believed that all Romans were descendants of Mars.

Pomona
was the goddess of plenty, she scorned the love of Silvanus and Picus but married Vertumnus after he tricked her, disguised as an old woman. Her high priest
was called the flamen Pomonalis. The pruning knife was her attribute.

Pomona was a uniquely Roman goddess, unusual in that she was never identified with any
Greek counterpart. She was particularly associated with the blossoming of trees
rather than with the harvest.
