Matuta [1]

in Roman mythology, was originally an ancient Italian goddess of day- dawn, and later confounded with Letucothea (q.v.), and with Albunea (q.v.). Her festival was celebrated June 11, at which mothers took the children of their sisters on their arms, because Ino (Leucothea) had brought up her sister's son, Bacchus.
