Additional Information


The mouth of truth is a disc engraved with the head of the sea god, standing on the wall at the end of the main entrance of the main entrance of the Church of Our Lady of Cosmeine, famous for the movie "Roman Holiday". Those who are rumored to lie will be bitten if they put their hands in the mouth of truth. Another way of saying this is that if you put your hand in the mouth of truth, you will remember the name of your lover in the heart. If your hand is not bitten, it means that you are sincere to this love.
