In Roman mythology, Juturna, also known as Diuturna, was the mother of Fontus by Janus and a goddess of springs, wells, and fountains.
According to some myths, she was originally a woman who was loved by Jupiter. He offered her immortality and dominion over the freshwater streams of Latium. According to another version, she was instead the goddess wife of Janus, by whom she had Fons.
