opis F

italic (sabines)

In ancient Roman religion, Ops or Opis (Latin: Plenty), was a fertility deity and earth-goddess of Sabine origin. Husband of Ops was Saturn, the bountiful monarch of the Golden Age. Just as Saturn was identified with the Greek deity Cronus, Ops was identified with Rhea, Cronus' wife and sister. In her statues and coins, Opis is figured sitting down, as Chthonian deities normally are, and generally holds a scepter or a corn spike as her main attributes. The Chthonian deities are the manifestations of the Great Goddess, such as Gaia or Ge.
