ETRUSCAN MYTHOLOGY

The old pre-Roman Gods of the Etruscans...

ALPAN

Etruscan Love Goddess

Also known as ALPANU, ALPNU

Etruscan Underworld Goddess of Love

She is a somewhat mysteriously winged lady about whom little is known for certain. She runs around completely naked, but this may just be for publicity purposes. However, despite her nudity, she does wear sandals.

She appears to be an Underworld deity, but others sources hint at spring frolics and plant procreation. But all agree that she is adorably lovely and very beneficial in the love department.

Her best friends are the LASAS, who guard graves and do a lot of flitting about themselves.
