Pallor

and Pavor (“Paleness” and “Fright”). The Roman personifications of terror, and companions of the war-god Mars. As early as the time of King Tullus Hostilius sanctuaries are said to have been erected in their honour. On coins Pallor was represented as a boy with dishevelled hair and perturbed bearing, and Pavor as a man with an expression of horror and with bristling hair.
