Roman Equivalent Palici

In Greek mythology, the Palici (or Palikoi) were a pair of gods who ruled over the geysers and thermal springs in the region of Palakia (Palacae) in Sicily.

They were also the gods of solemn oaths, which were sworn upon their hot-springs and offered refuge in their shrine to escaped slaves.


Their origin is debatable, they could have been the offspring of Zeus and Thalia of Adranos or of Zeus and Aitna. According to the Aeneid, they could have been the sons of Hephaestus and Aitna.
