THE OLD GODS AND THE SIBILLA’s DECK

Remnants of the Graeco-Roman wisdom can be seen in the post Neo Classical era within the Sibilla’s deck.
Companion of Amore-Cupid, Hymen (Ancient Greek: Ὑμήν), Hymenaios or Hymenaeus, in ancient Greece, was a god of marriage ceremonies, inspiring feasts and songs.
He was the son of a muse, Clio or Calliope or Urania or Terpsichore. Human anatomy celebrates this Spirit with a part within virginal female pudendae.
Hymen was supposed to attend every wedding. If he didn’t, then the marriage would supposedly prove disastrous, so the Greeks would run about calling his name aloud. He presided over many of the weddings in Greek mythology, for all the deities and their children.
At least since the Italian Renaissance, Hymen was generally represented in art as a young man wearing a garland of flowers and holding a burning torch in one hand.
Euripides, Sappho but also William Shakespeare wrote about this God also called THE KING OF MARRIAGE.
The image of the Sibilla is then revealed.
The altar with a burning flame instead of the torch and the wedding rings exchange.
The Masenghini deck (most famous Sibilla) also says that a good marriage is like a good business because increases a person’s life being beneficial.

May Hymen bless you all with an happy and everlasting relationship.
