The nymph of a fountain in Latium, famous for its healing qualities, whose water was used
in many of the sacrifices. A pond in the Forum, between the temples of Castor and Vesta, was
called Lacus Iuturnae. The nymph is said to have been beloved by Iupiter, who rewarded her
with immortality and dominion over the waters. Vergil calls her the sister of Turnus. See
