Verticordia in Roman mythology, is a surname of Venus, the directrix of the heart. There was a temple erected to her when three vestal virgins had fallen at the same time, so that she might turn the hearts of women from unchastity. To dedicate this temple and to erect the statue of the goddess, there were selected by lot, out of one hundred of the most virtuous women, ten, who then named one of their number (Sulpicia, wife of Fulvius Flaccus) for the performance of that duty.
