The Classical Gods of the Roman Empire...

CARMENTA

Roman Divination Goddess

Also known as NICOSTRATE

Nymph of Prophecy with bonus extras

She started off as a nymph of prophecy (see NYMPHS(2) ) but seems to have ended up just about anywhere.

She prophesized a good future for herself by putting it about that she was married to MERCURY.

She also signed herself into hotels under the name Nicostrate, was connected with King Faunus, and did commercials for beans whilst playing the harp.

She claims also that she was the real Goddess of Childbirth Protection.
