Bona Dea literally means the “good goddess” and refers to female spirits exclusively venerated by women. Because these were Mystery traditions from which men were excluded, little documented information about the Bona Dea survives. Several different goddesses were classified among the Bona Dea. References to the Bona Dea are generally believed to refer to Fauna.
