Dea Pomona

Pomona Dea is the Roman goddess of gardens and orchards; the lady of the orchard. She is seen in mythology to have dismissed the advances of both Silvanus and Picus, and is said to have married Vertumnus after he disguised himself as a crone and tricked her. Her priest is the Flamen Pomonalis. Pomona is associated with abundance, and is often seen carrying a platter of fruit or a cornucopia.
