GENITA Mana


GENITA Mana
GENITA Mana
qualis olim Genius fuerit, docet Plutarch. in Quaest. Rom. q. 52. διὰ τί, inquit, τῇ καλουμένῃ Γενείτη μάνῃ κύνα θύουσι, καὶ κατεύχονται μηδένα χρηςτὸν ἀποβῆναι τῶ οἰκογευῶν. ἢ ὅτι δαίμων ἐςτὶν ἡ Γενείτα περὶ τᾶς γευέσεις καὶ τὰς λοχείας τῶ φθαρτῶν, Cur Genitae, ut vocant, Manae canem immolant, votaque saciunt, ne domi quis bonus nascatur, nisi quia genius est Genita, ortut et puerperio rerum corruptibilium praepositus? Et paulo post, ut Romanos Genitae, ita Graecos Hecatae canem, pro nascentibus sacrificare dicit. Votum autem id, Ne domi quis bonus anscatur, explicat Bartholin. ne quis imbellis, l. de Puerp. vet. Nempe Dea genendi, Genita dicta est, ut Moneta, Dea monendi, et Pota, Dea potus. Mana autem cognominata est, h. e. bona, non a manando, ut Plutarch. interpretatur, quasi praeses sit τῆς γευέσεως καὶ λοχείας τῶ φθαρτῶν. Itaque Genita Mana, idem est quod Genita bona, ut Cerus Manus, in carmine Saliari, Creator bonus. Salmas. ad Solin. p. 412. Vide quoque de hac generationis Dea. Sam. Bochart. Hierozoici Parte prior. l. 11. c. 56.
