Sirona, in Roman mythology, is a name designating a goddess mentioned in several inscriptions in connection with Apollo Grannus. Some writers regard the name as a local appellative of Diana, while others think that it designates a Gallic divinity. The most recent inscription was discovered by the side of a mineral spring at Nierstein, on the Rhine, which is accordingly known as the Sirona spring. Another inscription in stone, having the names of both Apollo and Sirona, and dating from A.D. 201, was dug up at Grossbottwar, in Wurtemberg.
