Quiritis

| |

The Sabine goddess of motherhood was named Quiritis.

She was frequently linked to defense. Later, Quiritis was associated with the goddess Juno, who was occasionally worshiped as Juno Quiritis (or Juno Curitis). While some academics contend that Juno was simply another iteration of Quiritis, others assert that the two are only related through borrowing.

She is frequently seen wielding a spear or lance, which is said to be the origin of her name, which is derived from a Sabine term. This characteristic became a part of Juno‘s personality.
