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.)
 

Issacus Divus

ᛋᚢᚾᚢ ᚱᛖᛟᚱᛞᚲᚤᚾᛁᚾᚷᚨᛋ
Mars me adiuvat.
 

Issacus Divus

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

Issacus Divus

ᛋᚢᚾᚢ ᚱᛖᛟᚱᛞᚲᚤᚾᛁᚾᚷᚨᛋ
I sure am.

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

Mellona, the goddess of bees and honey, is another one mentioned by Christian writers
