Pilumnus is an archaic birth and childhood deity.
The brother of Picumnus in Roman mythology was the nature god Pilumnus (also known as “staker”). He saw to it that kids developed normally and remained healthy. After a child was born, the ancient Romans constructed an additional bed to ensure Pilumnus’ assistance. He also demonstrated how to grind grain to humans. He was also also referred to as Dana’s husband, making him Danaus’ father and Turnus’ ancestor. A stake was buried as part of a ritual to honor the deity.
