Paventia

Paventia is the Roman Goddess of childhood fears. She both protects against sudden fright and comforts those who have been frightened. The Romans placed great importance on infancy and early childhood, and had many deities devoted to this time, each with rule over a very specific aspect. Her name is also seen as Paventina.
