Roman

The Romans, as they grew and conquered other lands, adopted those things from other cultures that they liked. They even adopted other peoples' gods. When the Romans met the Greeks and heard all the stories about the Greek gods, they adopted all the Greek gods. They changed the names of the gods to make them Roman and changed some of the stories to make the gods act more like Romans. Soon they even were able to act like these had been Roman gods all along

Invidia is the Roman goddess of retribution and envy, her Greek counterpart being Nemesis. A number of rituals and spells existed in ancient Rome that effectively averted envy and the evil eye. Witches and magic were associated with Invidia, who was said to have a poisoned tongue; this is why witches were depicted having protruding tongues. 

Invidia was closely associated with occassions in which justice was offended and the sight of undeserved wealth and shamelessly exercised authority caused grief. She was described as having a pale skin, lean body and discoloured teeth. In the Christian religion, Invidia became one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
