"THE ROMANS HAD A GODDESS WHOSE NAME WAS FIDES," WHOSE TEMPLE WAS FIRST CONSECRATED BY "NUMA", THE LEGENDARY SECOND KING OF ROME. HER SYMBOL WAS TWO RIGHT HANDS JOINED, OR SOMETIMES TWO HUMAN FIGURES HOLDING EACH OTHER BY THE RIGHT HANDS. AN ANCIENT GODDESS, "FIDES" IS THE ROMAN GODDESS OF FAITH AND TRUST. HER NAME MEANS "'GOOD FAITH'" IN LATIN; OUR WORD "'FIDELITY' "COMES FROM HER NAME. SHE WAS THE PERSONIFICATION OF HONOR, HONESTY, AND GOOD FAITH.
