Roman - A king of Italy. Son of Hermes, some say. Father of Latinus. Father of Acis, some say. He had the habit of killing all strangers and sacrificing them to his father, Hermes. He was killed by Heracles (during his tenth Labour) and some say that it was Heracles who fathered Latinus, not Faunus. His spirit was said to have warned Latinus not to allow his daughter, Lavinia, to marry any but a stranger who would soon arrive from over the sea. This turned out to be Aeneas. In some accounts, he is the same as Faunus, the Italian god of vegetation.
