Latin: Juno goddess of childbirth.


Please add updates or make corrections to the NumisWiki text version as appropriate.
Juno Lucina - It was under this name that |Juno| presided over childbirth; and accordingly on medals of those empresses who either had brought forth a child, or who had invoked the aid of the goddess in their approaching childbirth, we see Juno Lucina represented as seated, holding an infant and a flower.

On coins of |Faustina|, wife of Marcus Aurelius, she appears with two children near her.

There are some writers who think |Juno| |Lucina| to be the same as Diana; and with Luna, one deity.
