Caeculus

Roman - Founder of Praeneste. He was born when a spark from the fire flew into his mother's lap, and hence claimed to be the son of Vulcan. To prove his claim he invoked the help of the god, who caused a wall of flame to appear all round his newly founded city. He helped Turnus against Aeneas. In some lore, occasionally called Caeculus.
