What God is September named after?

Asked by Shepherd Hill

The lizard is also an attribute of Apollo Sauroctonos. In calendar mosaics from Hellín in Roman Spain and Trier in Gallia Belgica, September is represented by the god Vulcan, the tutelary deity of the month in the menologia rustica, depicted as an old man holding tongs.
