Spirit derives from pre-Roman Italy (around 500 BC).

Acca means 'mother' and Larentia means 'goddess'. Went by 8 other names!

There's several legends about Acca Larentia, including being the Mother of Lares and being the benefactor of Rome.

One story says she was a sex worker who amassed a fortune and bequeathed it all to Rome. Another suggests that she was the beautiful prize given to Heracles for winning a game of dice. She was locked in his temple. When the deity (or his priests) had enough of her, she was advised to marry the first rich man she met. She did, eventually inherited his estate, and bequeathed that to the Roman.

The most popular version of Acca Larentia’s myth is that she was the wife of Faustulus, the Shepherd who found Romulus and Remus and thus the foster mother of the founders of Rome.
