PIETAS
The Roman goddess of domestic affection. In Rome she had a special temple, vowed at the battle of Thermopylae in 191 B.C. by Acilius Glabrio, and consecrated by his son in 181. The popular legend was, that it was erected as a memorial to a daughter, who had supported with the milk from her breast the life of her mother (or father) when condemned to death by starvation [Valerius Max., v 4 Section 7]. On coins the goddess appears as a matron strawing incense on an altar; her symbol is the stork.
