The God Fagus
« on: April 06, 2012, 03:27:00 pm »
Hey!  I'm looking for any useful information on this guy.  I just joined a group doing a recipe swap for Gods or Goddesses whose name begins with the letter F.  I chose Fagus the God of Beech Trees.  And I'm beginning to think that I love to make things more difficult for myself.  If anyone has any info that I could use--- or good beech recipes that would be helpful.  I keep finding conflicting information so I'm not entirely sure if I should move onto someone less obscure.  Or even I better suggestion for a F GOD/DESS.  THANKS!

Hi there!

I don't know anything about Fagus, I'm sorry to say.  However, if you're looking for a different deity for your project, the name Fufluns came to mind.  He is the Etruscan god of - WINE, being a deity very similar to the Greek Dionysus and the Roman Bacchus.  Which could give you lots of ideas for recipes, if you can use wine or grapes.  

...And his name is very fun to say.

That"s funny I call my kitty cat something close to Fufluns sometimes.  Also, its interesting that you chose Etruscan, since when in college I went to Italy and visited some ancient Etruscan sites.  Thanks I'll definitely keep this one in mind if I have continued difficulty.
