RUMINA is the Roman Goddess of breastfeeding. She protected all nursing infants, human and animal, and watched over milk cows as well. She had a temple near the fig tree at the base of the Palatine Hill called the Ficus Ruminales, where the abandoned twins Romulus and Remus were found and suckled by a she-wolf. The wolf continued to feed and raise the twins, who eventually founded Rome. Offerings to Rumina were of milk rather than of wine. Her name means "the nourisher," and is also seen as DIVA RUMINA, RUMILIA, and RUMIA.
