PROSERPINE [aka PROSERPINA]
[noun]
an ancient Roman goddess of the Underworld and Spring, one whose cult, myths and mysteries were based on those of Greek Persephone and her mother Demeter, the Greek goddess of grain and agriculture. The Romans identified Proserpine with their native fertility goddess Libera, daughter of the grain and agriculture goddess Ceres and wife to Liber.
Etymology: Latinisation of “Persephone”, perhaps influenced by the Latin proserpere, “to emerge, to creep forth”.
