Etruscan Mythology

The mysterious pre-Roman Gods of the Etruscans...


Etruscan Sun Goddess

Also known as Cath, Cautha, Cetha, Kavtha

Sun Goddess of the Dawn

The ‘daughter of the sun’, she symbolizes new beginnings. (Ed: is there any other sort?)

Identified with Sol, Catha rises from the ocean every morning holding aloft a blazing flame.

We did hear a faint whisper that Catha may actually be male. Rising from the sea holding a fistful of fire does admittedly sound like the kind of thing a male God would do.
