Salus[edit]

This is extremely careless - all references to Salus in Wikipedia are linked to this page, and yet there is no mention of Salus here! Of course Salus originated as the similar figure of Hygieia, but Salus is NOT simply another (Roman) name for a Greek goddess: although a minor Roman deity, Salus had a temple on the Quirinal hill. There was a statue to Salus in the temple of Concordia, and she had an annual festival on 30th March. She features on Roman coins (holding a sacred snake and often feeding it).

Salus-Sirona?[edit]

The side panel gives Sirona as the Roman equivalent to Hygieia, but all references to Salus in Wikipedia are linked to this page. Surely this is incorrect: Sirona was worshipped in East Central Gaul (there are no Sirona finds in Rome or in the other Roman provinces). It may be true that the attributes of Hygieia/Salus were later adopted by Sirona. The Lesser Merlin (talk) 11:01, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Salus stub created[edit]

I created a stub Salus, put in your ideas. Andreas  (T) 12:40, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
