Lisbon's Roman baths and Aesculapius.

I'm really enjoying these posts. I'm learning a lot too.

A small post on Diana of Olisipo. There's not much information on Her and the same is true for Apollo, which will be the topic of the next post.

Do they have any idea how large the statue would have been? The block looks relatively small -- although it is very hard to tell the size from the picture.

As far as I know, there's no idea on what the statue looked like. If memory serves me right, the block is around 3 feet tall and probably 1.5 feet wide, but it could have been standing on a small plataform, therefore giving a sense of hight even if the statue wasn't all that big.

Any more links on pre-Roman gods? I know I saw a list on wikipedia a while back on pre-Roman gods that were in Portugal. I've been trying to get a hold of ancestral deities and I really have no interest in the Roman pantheon. Right now I've been adopted by the Greek Pantheon, but I would still love to have a relationship with the native gods of Portugal before outside influence(which is hard considering it's a port and a lot of countries influenced Portugal).

Here is one of the goddesses I've found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ataegina

To my knowledge, there are no other traces of pre-Roman deities in Lisbon and around. There are news of ruins of a temple to the Sun and the Moon in Sintra (which will be mentioned further on), but that's it. For Celtic and Iberian gods from Portugal, you need to look outside Lisbon, such as Alandroal in Alentejo for the god Envodelico and Braga in the north for the goddess Navia (or Nabia), and Bormanicus, akin to the Celtic Bormo and to Whom an inscription was found in a town just south of Braga.

Adkins' Dictionary of Roman Religion has some brief entries on old gods from Portugal and there are a series of online papers on Celtic gods from Portuguese and Spanish territory here, all written in English.
