CATHA

Etruscan Sun Goddess

Also known as Kavtha, Cautha, Cath, Cetha

Sun Goddess of the Dawn

The ‘daughter of the sun’, she symbolizes new beginnings. (Ed: is there any other sort?)

Identified with SOL(2), CATHA rises from the ocean every morning holding aloft a blazing flame.

We did hear a faint whisper that CATHA may actually be male. Rising from the sea holding a fistful of fire does admittedly sound like the kind of thing a male God would do.
