Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Roman mythology, Inuus was an ancient protector of livestock, one of the di indigetes. He was probably a god of fertility or sexual intercourse, as his name was thought by some to be connected with the word inire, "to copulate". Livy named him as the god who was originally worshiped at the Lupercalia. He was also sometimes identified with the Roman god Faunus.
