On another site I found a story about Laverna. "In one story, Laverna tricks a priest and a lord into handing over an estate and castle, saving she would pay at a later date. However, she sold off all the crops, grain, cattle, wood, and poultry and anything of value. On the day fixed for payment there was no Laverna to be seen. The priest and the lord appealed to the gods, complaining that they had been robbed by a goddess." (see how it turns out at Laverna 2)
And yet another site has Laverna saying: "I am the snatching hand, the purse lifted and the coin lost; and I am the woman in the shadows, watching, always watching." (check out Laverna 3)
A very creative artist, Thalia Took, has made an image of Laverna on her website Thalia Took, where she has prints and shirts of many Gods and Goddesses along with their stories...check them out!
I blog for fun and amusement. Today is no exception. An idea marinates in my head an voila, we have a blog. Now, thanks to Alicia DiMichele, we all learned something new.There is a Roman Goddess of thieves and she lives among us!
