Cuba

October 27th, 2008 by sabrina

Cuba is the Roman Goddess of sleeping children. Sister of Rumina, Goddess of breastfeeding, and Cunina, Goddess of sleeping infants, Cuba takes over from Cunina as children graduate from cradle to bed. She was prayed to by mothers to help their children get to sleep and to protect them while they slept. Cuba was also invoked by mothers of sick children, to bring healing sleep. Her name means “lying down.”
