The Etruscan female divinity (alternatively known as Menerva) that corresponded to the Latin Minerva and the Greek Athena. She was one of the most important cult deities (e.g., in the Portonaccio sanctuary at Veii and Santa Marinella sanctuary), even if she was not on the liver of Piacenza. Menrva was born from the head of her father, Tinia. She was one of the three most important divinities (with Uni and Tinia) and appears to have had a multifaceted role, participating in the Judgment of Paris, protecting heroes, and attending scenes of love, healing, and birth.
