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).
