Furrina

| |

By the first century BC, the purpose of the ancient Roman goddess Furrina (Furina) had become unclear.

Since she was one of the fifteen goddesses with their own flamen, the Furrinalis, one of the flamines minores, her religion before the beginning of Roman religious history. There is some evidence to support Furrina’s connection to water. Furrina was a goddess of springs, according to Varro. On the right side of the Tiber, on the southwest slopes of Mount Janiculum, the goddess maintained a temple and a holy spring. The Furrinalia, which was celebrated on July 25, was Furrina’s celebration.
