A Roman title of "Three Ways" for Hecate, the Goddess of three-way crossroads. These locations were where her three-faced images received gifts of cake, fruit, or money. She also governed springs and fountains. Currently, money is still offered at the Roman fountain bearing her name, Trevi.

The modern term "trivia" some think may be an offshoot of the Goddess’ name to discredit the importance of offering gifts to her images for her protection on journeys. Of course, when considering how important the collection of trivia has become to some, this may not always be true. A.G.H.
