Seeing as how horses were the main means of transportation, this must have been a bit of an important goddess.

After the Minerva and Merkur pair, she was one of the biggest deities in the north of the roman empire of course. There are many temple remains with pretty images of her and her horses, and also stones with inscriptions as good as everywhere in the empire, as the horse guard of the emperor adopted her as their special patron and often vowed her to make some big offering for help with a certain situation or somesuch -- much as votive pictures for saint Mary much later.
