A goddess of storms. A temple was dedicated to her in 260 BCE by L. Cornelius Scipio after his fleet had narrowly escaped shipwreck in a storm near Corsica. According to others it was M. Marcellus who dedicated the temple.1 The temple stood before the Porta Capena at Rome, at the Appian Way. Black lambs were sacrificed at the temple.
