Abstract
My contribution aims to offer a new reading of fr. 1 Cardauns from Varro’s Divine Antiquities. In this fragment the association of the Sabin goddess Vacuna with Victoria can be linked to the dedication of the work to Caesar and to the political context of the Civil War. The etymological explanation of this interpretatio, in turn, sheds light on the philosophical character of the passage. In fr. 1 Cardauns, religion, philosophy, and politics ultimately constitute a compact whole, where each element supports and legitimates the others.
