MEANING: The Divine Mare-Horse Goddess, also Goddess of child bearing, and the home. Roman legionaries, deeply impressed with the Celtic horsemanship, took up the worship of Epona eventually importing Her 'cult' to Rome. The Mare Goddess accompanies the souls of honorable people into the land of the dead.
