    The Romans had a lot of gods and godesses... Most unknown to us, a few unknown even to them by the first century CE... What's your favourite?

    (Here's a list.)

    This one, maybe? :D

    More seriously, I don't really have a favorite god or goddess.

    That 'twas a quote, for the one I adiuvō is Iuppiter.

    That means that you are Jupiter's favourite god.

    Jovis pater obviously! (then maybe Mars, since I'm very indirectly named after him)

    But seriously, Iuppiter is my favorite. He's just too Indo-Europeanly cool to me.

    Since the only citation is from the Christian writer Arnobius, who knows if Limus actually exists as a god

    This is a good question and difficult to answer. I shall think on it.

    It is. I hope one god won't be offended with you picking another...
