"SIRONA" WAS A CELTIC GODDESS OF HEALING, FERTILITY, AND REGENERATION. SHE WAS OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH WARM, MEDICINAL SPRINGS. HER NAME IS RELATED TO "'STAR'," SO PERHAPS SHE ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH NIGHT AND DARKNESS. HER EMBLEM IS A SNAKE WHICH SYMBOLIZES HER ROLE IN HEALING. AND AS AN EARTH GODDESS, SHE WAS OFTEN DEPICTED FULLY DRAPED AND CROWNED; SHE CARRIES THREE EGGS AND HAS A SNAKE WINDING ABOUT HER ARM. BOTH ARE SYMBOLS OF A CELTIC HEALER.

SHE WAS REVERED IN CONTINENTAL EUROPE AT HOT MEDICINAL SPRINGS AND MINERAL WATERS IN DIVERSE LOCALES LIKE SOUTHERN FRANCE AND GERMANY. INSCRIPTIONS WITH HER NAME SOMETIMES APPEARED ALONG WITH THAT OF HER HUSBAND "GRANNOS", WHICH WAS ANOTHER NAME FOR "APOLLO."

THE SIRONA NATURE TRAIL WAS NAMED IN HER HONOR.
