Goddess of Courage and mediator in the Sabine v. Roman war.Formerly the spouse of ROMULUS, she was fire-bolted by JUPITER in one of his tetchy moments.
However this earned her a place in Heaven as Hora Quinini and she was looked up to by young Romans as a promoter of courage.
She is also associated with Halley's Comet. But unfortunately we didn't get the chance to interview her the last time she passed.
