Manes in Wikipedia
In ancient Roman religion, the Manes or Di Manes are chthonic
deities sometimes thought to represent the souls of deceased
loved ones. They were associated with the Lares, Genii, and Di
Penates as deities (di)) that pertained to domestic, local,
and personal cult. They were honored during the Parentalia and
Feralia in February.
Latin spells of antiquity were often addressed to The Manes,
who were the spirits of deceased ancestors....
