Title: Xulsigiae  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Treveri, Suleviae, Lenus
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


In Gallo-Roman religion, the Xulsigiae were triple[1] goddesses worshipped at the healing-spring shrine in Augusta Treverorum (present-day Trier). Edith Wightman suggests that they "may be local nymphs of the spring"; on the other hand, she also links their name to that of the Suleviae, whom she characterizes as "domestic goddesses".[2] Their temple, a smaller shrine near the monumental Lenus Mars temple,[3] has also yielded clay figures of the genii cucullati.[4] The name itself is attested only from one inscription, where it accompanies that of Lenus Mars:



TO V S L M[5]

"To Lenus Mars and the Xulsigiae, Lucius Virius Diseto freely and deservedly fulfilled his vow."
