In Roman mythology, Dea Tacita ("the Silent (or Mute) Goddess") was a Goddess of the Dead. In later times, She was equated with the Naiad Larunda. In this guise, Dea Tacita was worshipped at a festival called Larentalia on December 23. Goddesses Mutae Tacitae (Mute Goddesses) were invoked to destroy a hated person. These silent Goddesses are the personification of the terror of obscurity.
Al-Uzza (“The Most Mighty”) is a pre-Islamic Arabian goddess, the virgin warrior and youngest in the triad of goddesses with Menat (“Time”, the Death or Fate goddess, sometimes—I think erroneously—called the Goddess of the Full Moon, since the Moon in Arabia was masculine) and Al Lat (whose name means “The Goddess”, as Al Lah means “The God”).
Marah is a Canaanite Water-Goddess, considered benevolent and merciful. She is the daughter of the great Mother Goddess Athirat-of-the-Sea, and twin sister to Anat, the Warrior Maiden Goddess of extraordinarily bad temper. Little is known about her, we even don't know if She is primarily a Goddess of the ocean, rivers, or lakes.
Hathor is one of the most beloved of Egypt’s goddesses, a benevolent, understanding and stunningly beautiful figure responsible for all artistic endeavor and happiness in the world. The goddess of joy, celebration, music and art, she presides over festivals whose sole purpose is to bring joy to the participants; she is also a goddess of the family, and is known to protect children, provide their mothers with new siblings and to heal their small ills with infinite care.
