HERSILIA

Roman Courage Goddess

Goddess of Courage

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.
