Venulus

Person

Who is Venulus?

Venulus was an ambassador sent by Turnus of Ardea to the Greek hero Diomedes to request assistance in a war against Aeneas. He appears as a character in Vergil's Aeneid and Ovid's Metamorphoses; in both epics, he seems to serve as a proxy or counterpart of the goddess Venus, whose name is incorporated in his own. There is no evidence for his existence beyond the Aeneid and Metamorphoses.
