Bellona: Goddess of War, Conquest and Peace
Bellona's name; an obvious derivative from the Latin world "bellum" or "war", speaks of her domain. She was the goddess of War, believed to be paired with Mars; pending on the source she has been anything from his sister to his wife. She is portrayed in art as a woman clad in an ornate breast plate, soldier's helm, wielding a sword and shield; in heraldic crests she may appear as a goddess with feathered wings while wearing her helmet. Bellona is said to hold the "Horn of Victory and Defeat"; the sound of which can forecast the outcome of the battle the Romans currently are engaged in. It's said by Ammianus Marcellinus, in his description of the Roman defeat during the "Battle of Adrianople", "Bellona, blowing her mournful trumpet, was raging more fiercely than usual, to inflict disaster on the Romans." Any being able to control the outcome of a war by the bellowing of their horn, easily deserves a spot on our list.
