a female Roman divinity, to whom an altar was erected at Rome, near the temple of the Lares in the Via Sacra. She was invoked by parents who had been deprived of their children, and desired to have others, and also in dangerous maladies of children. (Cic. de Nat. Deor. 3.25; Plin. H.N. 2.7; Arnob. ad v. Gent. 4.7; Tertull. 2.14; P. Vict. Reg. Urb. x.)
