The term Palici
refers to twin gods in Roman
and, to a lesser extent, Greek
mythology. They are sons of Etna
, and Sicilian[?]
chthonic gods of geysers, venerated as heroes. In Palacia[?]
, there was a shrine to the Palici. People could subject themselves or others to tests of reliability through divine judgement. Passing meant an oath could be trusted.
Ovid V, 406; Virgil IX, 585.
