Your Favourite Roman God

Venus, if she was good enough for the Divine Julius she's good enough for me.

 

(Pssst...don't let on, but I have a hankering for that Tanit wench, she is one sweet looking tart.)

Have to agree - the Venus Kallipygos certainly floats my particular boat.

My 'favourite?'  Well, I'd give the nod to Mars, Patron of Rome.  Second choice is Mithras (supposing I was a bloke).  Then there's the Emperor, whoever he was lately.   And to cover all bases, I'd do 'The Unknown God' .   Probably, I'd just honour whatever god the pater chose to keep on his good side, or the patron of my trade.  .Actually, being spoiled for choice, I'd be a very godly person.    .

My favorite god within the Roman group is Venus-Urantia. Such a genesis - and yet she remains mis-identified with 'love' and selfless love at that.  I would have thought that she would be transparent to our modern society with all its Jungian, et alia, allegorical  de-constructionists. But no, it seems she remains "The Goddess of Love". But then how do we regard Eros as Cupid?
