"the goddess who soothes the anger of man," was a surname of Juno, describing her as the restorer of peace between married people. She had a sanctuary on the Palatine, into which women went when they thought themselves wronged by their husbands. They frankly told the goddess their grief, and the latter disposed their minds to become reconciled to their husbands. (Fest. p. 62; V. Max. 2.1.6.)
