Mercury with Lara (or Mania)

Lara was a Naiad, daughter of the river Almon in Roman mythology. She was famous for both beauty and loquaciousness -- a trait her parents attempted to curb. She was incapable of keeping secrets, and so she revealed Jupiter's affair with Juturna to Juno. For betraying his trust, Jupiter cut out Lara's tongue and ordered Mercury to conduct her to Hades. Mercury, however, fell in love with Lara and coupled with her along the way. Lara became mother of two children, referred to as the Lares.

Alternatives: Larunde and Laranda.
