Wikipedia, April 10, 2014 (Ceres (mythology). In ancient Roman religion, Ceres was a goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships. She was originally the central deity in Rome's so-called plebeian or Aventine Triad, then was paired with her daughter Proserpina in what Romans described as "the Greek rites of Ceres"; the Romans saw her as the counterpart of the Greek goddess Demeter) Belarusian page (Цэрэра = Tsėrėra) Bulgarian page (Церера = T︠S︡erera) Bosnian page (Cerera) Breton page (Keres) Greek page (Κέρες = Keres) Esperanto page (Cereso) Basque page (Zeres) Indonesian page (Seres) Italian page (Cerere) Macedonian page (Керера = Kerera) Russian page (Церера = T︠S︡erera), April 10, 2014 (Ceres was the Roman Goddess of agriculture and grain. After a terrible famine in 496 B.C. the Sibylline books recommended the adoption of the Greek Deities Demeter, Dionyisus and Persephone. Their identities were changed to Ceres, Liber and Libera. Together they formed the Avertine triad. In Roman mythology she was the daughter of Saturn and Ops. She had several brothers and sisters: Juno, Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto and Vesta. She married her brother Jupiter and together they had a daughter named Proserpina. Greek equivalent: Demeter)
Britannica online, April 10, 2014 (Ceres, in Roman religion, goddess of the growth of food plants, worshiped either alone or in association with the earth goddess Tellus. At an early date her cult was overlaid by that of Demeter, who was widely worshiped in Sicily and Magna Graecia. On the advice of the Sibylline Books, a cult of Ceres, Liber, and Libera was introduced into Rome (according to tradition, in 496 bc) to check a famine.)
