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

King under the heavens
Mars me adiuvat.
 

Issacus Divus

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

Issacus Divus

King under the heavens
I sure am.
 

Issacus Divus

King under the heavens

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...

Issacus Divus

King under the heavens
I'm feeling a kind of phthonus spirit in here
