ROMAN MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of the Roman Empire...

FIDES

Roman Good Faith Goddess

Bona fide Goddess of Faith and Loyalty

She was always in demand in the Roman Senate, where loyalty to the state — if not the Emperor — was of prime importance.

Her name is now a byword for loyalty — particularly to dog owners who name their pooch Fido.
