she come for the waters
of Aquae Sulis,
to bathe or drink
them? Did she come to the Goddess
the springs welling hot from the earth?
she died here
from her home in Gaul, though still
her own people. Her memorial
stone on the road beyond the walls
Roman law decreed, tells us all
know about her :"Rusonia Aventina
the Mediomatrici died aged 58
is buried here", ad fontes aquarum.
