Quick Reference

Latin name given to a triad of mother-goddesses known in many parts of the Roman-occupied Celtic world as well as in Rome itself. Iconographic and epigraphical evidence suggests that the goddesses were linked to cults of healing, regeneration, fertility, and maternity. They were worshipped at three sites in Britain: Colchester, Cirencester, and Bath. This latter site suggests a connection with Minerva, one of whose epithets is Sulevia, pl. Suleviae. See also MATRES.
