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.
 

Issacus Divus

H₃rḗǵs h₁n̥dʰéri diwsú
Mars me adiuvat.
 

Issacus Divus

H₃rḗǵs h₁n̥dʰéri diwsú
That 'twas a quote, for the one I adiuvō is Iuppiter.
 

Issacus Divus

H₃rḗǵs h₁n̥dʰéri diwsú
I sure am.
 

Issacus Divus

H₃rḗǵs h₁n̥dʰéri diwsú
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

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...

I'm feeling a kind of phthonus spirit in here
