Palatua

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Palatua was a Roman goddess who was provided an official priest or flamen, the Flamen Palatualis, and was charged with guarding the Palatine Hill. Aside from this little else is known about her, and it is a safe assumption that her cult, like those of Falacer or Volturnus, had diminished during the late republican period, and that by the beginning of the Empire there were few, if any, followers aside from the flamen.
