Abstract

In this work the significance of two of the most important Sabine deities, Vacuna and Sabus, is investigated. To this aim. the origin of Sabines is investigated and their relationships with other ancient Italic peoples are analysed. In particular, Proto-Hiberians, Proto-Umbrians, Proto-Etruscans, Proto-Gaul-Latins, and Pelasgians are considered together with their migrations to Italy. The peopling of ancient Central Italy is then reconstructed taking the ancient sources and the most recent theories into account. In such a context, the origin, the developing, and the significance of God Sabus and Godess Vacuna is analysed seeking similarities and identifications with the deities of the other ancient Italic peoples.
