Janus from Etruscan and Roman Religion: Janus is represented by two heads back to back, each looking in opposite directions. Janus was regarded in ancient Etruscan and Roman religion as a god who served as the custodian of the Universe, god of all beginnings, and the guardian of gates and doors. He signified the tradition between primitive life and civilization, and maintained the balance between peace and war and youth and old age. The month of January is named after him. His festival, the Agonium, took place on January 9.
