One of the Sabine women carried away by the Romans at the celebration of the Consualia. She was given to Romulus as a wife, and, after his death, became herself a divinity, under the name of Hora (Youth) (Livy, i. 11; Gell. xiii. 22; Romul. 14). Others make her the wife of Hostus Hostilius, grandfather of king Tullus Hostilius of Rome (Macrob. Sat. i. 6).
