were beings peculiar to Roman mythology, prophetesses half human, half
divine, living to a great age, but not immortal. Etymologists used
to interpret their name as coming from the Greek Ζεύς and
councils), but it is far more satisfactorily explained as coming from sabius, or
sabus, an old Italian, but not a Latin word, which lives
still in the vernacular Sabio, thus making Sibulla signify a wise
old woman. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
