Angerona (or Angeronia)
Angerona (Or Angeronia)
in Roman mythology, was a goddess, about whom conflicting stories are found. For the most part, mythologists are agreed that she was the goddess of fear and apprehension. She was represented with a sealed mouth, in explanation of which it was said that secrecy and silence were the best remedy for fear and apprehension. Her statue stood in Rome on the altar of Volupia, goddess of pleasure, by whom she was ruled. Others say her sealed mouth denoted that the name of Rome was to be kept secret.
