The Lympha is an ancient Roman deity of fresh water similar to the nymphs.

The deity of fountains and wellheads, Fons, also known as “Source” or “Font,” is sometimes associated with the Lymphae. Due to the fact that “all agriculture is dry and poor without water,” she is one of the twelve agricultural deities Varro lists as the “leaders” (duces) of Roman farmers. The term lympha has an unknown origin. Water goddesses are frequently seen as sources of inspiration or divine revelation in the religions of ancient Greece, Rome, and the Celtic regions. These revelations may seem as lunacy or frenzy.
