The Penates, or Inner Ones were the Roman patron goddesses of the household. Roman families worshipped the Penates at the hearth and a portion of every daily meal was set aside for the Penates.
The Penates were originally patron goddesses of the storeroom, but gradually evolved into household deities. See also the listing of deities of the hearth.
According to Roman myth the Penates Publici were rescued from burning Troy by Aeneas and carried to Lavinium, then Longa, and finally to Rome, where they were housed in the Temple of Vesta at the Forum Romanum. Worship of the Penates was tied into the worship of Vesta and the Lares.
