Or Lara, a daughter of Almon, was a nymph who denounced to Juno that there was some connexion between Jupiter and Juturna; hence her name is connected with λαλεῖν, "talk, chat." Jupiter punished her by depriving her of her tongue, and condemning her to be conducted into the lower world by Mercury; but on the way thither Mercury fell in love with her, and afterwards she gave birth to two Lares.
