CARNA

Roman Doorway Goddess

Also known as CARDEA

Goddess of Door Hinges

Proof once more that the Romans had a deity for everything. She is one strange nymph spirit (see NYMPHS(2)) who submitted to sexual advance by JANUS in return for power over door hinges.

She seems keen on the well-being of mortals, especially small children, and is particularly fond of being offered bacon and beans.

What does she do to earn her breakfast? She keeps STRIGES out. No, we are not becoming mentally unhinged. Check them out.
