Saturnia. Juno is still hostile in spite of the reconciliation of 582. Macrobius relates the story differently (Sat. i. IX. 17-8). The gate opened three times after being shut, and was then put under a strong guard, who fled panic-stricken upon a report that the Romans were being worsted in the battle then raging. Ovid relates the story also in Fast.I. 260-72, where Janus claims the credit here given to the Naiads.
