…and Simon the God of Hairdos.*
I came across a list today of the minor Roman Gods. And there are LOTS of them. The Romans had a God for everything. Like hinges.
Oh yes, they had Cardea, Goddess of Door Hinges.
Carnea fared a little better. She was the Goddess of Door Handles, but also of the Heart and Other Organs.
Other awesome minor Gods: Febris (protectress against fevers), Fornax (Goddess of the Oven and Bread), Laverna (Goddess of Trickery), Lima (Goddess of Thresholds), Mefita (Goddess of Vapours Gasses from the Earth), Penates (God of the Storeroom), Potina (Goddess of Children’s Drinks), Robigus (protector of corn from diseases), Subrincinator (God of Weeding), and Viriplacaa (Goddess of Marital Strife).
Still, those aren’t that, um, crappy…
Cloacina was the Goddess of the Sewer.
