TALASSIO
Form: Talassius, Talassus.
The Roman god of marriage, corresponding to the Greek Hymenaeus. He was one of the unknown gods, and was only invoked by the appellation Talasse in the refrain to the epithalamia sung when the bride was brought home. A later account makes him one of those who, with Romulus, were principally concerned in the rape of the Sabine women, and hence explains the proverbial use of his name at all marriages [Livy, i 9 § 12].
