APOLLO VEIOVIS - Veiovis was an early Roman god of contested origin and purpose, who is currently referred to as a very mysterious figure. He has been thought to be a young Jupiter; yet his imagery was also depicted commonly (as it is here) very similarly associated with Apollo. Although associated with both destruction and healing, he is currently thought to most likely have been a "God of Expiation" (atonement and forgiveness) and protector of criminals.

GENIUS was basically the Roman version of a guardian angel/conscience. Seen as a creature between god and man status, GENII were assigned to people at birth; and everyone had a good and bad one. They would hand you over to the gods at the end of your life.
