(care), in Roman mythology, was an allegoric deity of which a fable is told. In thought, she was sitting by the shore of the sea, and watching the waves. Unconsciously to herself, her fingers formed out of clay a form and behold! it was man. She begged Jupiter to give him life, which he did, but required that the man should belong to him, to which Cura was opposed, as she had formed him, and, moreover, the earth, from which he had been taken, would not agree. Saturn, as judge, said: Jupiter shall receive the body after death: Cura shall have it during life, and his name shall be homo (man), because he was taken from humus (the earth).
