Roman temple of Bellona[edit]

http://www.ukans.edu/history/index/europe/ancient_rome/E/Gazetteer/Places/Europe/Italy/Lazio/Roma/Rome/.Texts/PLATOP*/TIMELINE.html Bellona's temple vowed in 296 BCE, dedicated some years later.

Bellona and belladonna[edit]

I'd like someone with more moderating skills and a better grasp of English add a mention of the plant belladonna (Atropa belladonna) into this text. The plant was consumed by Bellona's priestesses during rites and rituals.

My sources are mostly in books that aren't in print anymore, but a search returned this link if you wish to check upon a single sentence:

http://www.alchemy-works.com/herb_belladonna.html

There's no etymological connection between Bellona and bella, as in belladonna. Consumption of the plant "during rites and rituals" is not mentioned in any Latin text. Fakelore. --Wetman 14:23, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
What irony though, that war and beauty should have confoundingly similar names. 96.10.251.86 (talk) 04:12, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Splitting[edit]

Why is most of this entry about Bellona and why should we add more Bellona material to it? Shouldn't we split the entry up and give Bellona her own entry?

It seems that the entry for Bellona (godess) is redirected to this article. In my view this should be two seperate entries which link to each other.

I'd move the whole thing, without fragmenting it and losing normal context, to Bellona (mythology), in line with many other similar articles. Enyo is a minor personication of the strife of battle in a Greek poem or two, and the editor who noted "frequently depicted as being covered in blood and carrying weapons of war" had never ever seen a Greek depiction of Enyo. --02:28, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
A separate article for Bellona was a fine idea. I miss the contrast between the two which says something about the differences between Greek and Roman cultures. A brief paragraph to this effect would be useful, both here at at Bellona. --Wetman 14:23, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
