Agenoria

| |

Roman goddess of activity named Agenoria (actus). She endows the child with a capacity to lead an active life.

Only Augustine of Hippo named her and included her among the gods who care for children. She is one of the goddesses responsible for giving children developmental abilities including walking, singing, thinking, and learning to count. Despite her obscurity, Agenoria is the subject of the first of four Latin apologues written in 1497 in honor of Ercole II d’Este, duke of Ferrara, by the Italian humanist Pandolfo Collenuccio.
