Semonia was the goddess of sowing in Roman mythology.
She belonged to a pantheon of goddesses associated with agriculture that also included Setia (or Seja) and Segetia. Their names come from the same root as the Latin word sero, which means “to sow.” This ancient deity, who is linked to sowing and crops, may have originated from Roman or Sabine devotion. She is frequently referred to by the nickname Salus Semonia. The Sabine god Semo Sancus, whose characteristics fused with those of Dius Fidius, may be her masculine counterpart. Along with the other agricultural/crop goddesses Seia and Segetia, Semonia and Sancus make an appearance.
