Note regarding Manes:|
"The pure, the bright, the good." They were thought of as disembodied spirits, immortal as the gods. Their dwelling was in the depths of the earth, from which at certain seasons they emerged and flitted in circles beneath the moon. Their position in Roman mythology might possibly be understood as pointing to a prehistoric ancestor-worship. On epitaphs they are described as "the Divine Manes."
