FAMA
Also known as FAME

Celebrity Goddess of Fame and Infamy

She has her own trumpet, so we don't need to blow it for her. The Roman version of PHEME, FAMA is famous for her many eyes and mouths which act like flashing paparazzi cameras and gabbling gossip-mongering podcasts.

Her abode has a zillion windows on the world which she stares at like television screens. She has her finger on the pulse of society and has a hotline to all newspapers, radio stations and media moguls.

According to Ovid in his Metamorphosis, her celebrity cohorts include SUSURRI (gossip), CREDULITAS (error), LAETITIA (happiness) and TIMORES (terror).

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Fama graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Fama movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Fama statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Fama. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
