The goddesses Lympha and Camenae lived in the sources. Also in Rome itself, near the Camenae Gate, there was a source dedicated to the Camenae. Wanderers, passing by this spring, threw a flower, a branch of myrtle and other simple gifts of nature.
The Lympha and Camenae were virgins, bestowing mortals a marvellous song that was supposed to have divinatory power. In addition, they looked after songs, singing and poetry. As it can be assumed, they also did not resist Greek influences and were equated with the famous muses.
The sources were supervised by Fons. The temple dedicated to him was located on the hill Janiculum. Offerings were made to him in October when it was the feast of the Fontanalia Springs.
Countless creatures lived in the rivers. Almost every river, or even a small stream, had its own peculiar inhabitant. Tiberinus ruled Rome, Wolturnus in Campania, and Numicus in Avalanche. Tiberinus was once supposed to rule one of the Albanian cities.
In the middle of the Tiber River, there was a small island with a grove and a small temple. Every year it was visited by fishermen to make gifts and sacrifices to their master. A separate festival of Tiberinus was celebrated on May 15, when the Vestals would go out to the bridge and throw 24 straw puppets dressed in men’s robes into the Tiber.
