vediovus_collage.jpg

Known as the god of healing, Romans believed that Vediovis was one of the first gods to be born. He was called to protect right causes and to give pain and deception to enemies. His temple was described as a safe haven from police for wrongly persecuted people, and dedicated to the protection of newcomers to Rome.

In spring, to honor Vediovis, a female goat was sacrificed ritu humano to avert plagues.
