Days of Winter Holiday Trivia: Day 23

We're getting near the end of my little trivia contest. I hope you've enjoyed this series of "25 Days" posts.

As we edge closer to Christmas Eve, I'm reminded that the story of a Divine Child lying in a manger echoes the nativity scenes from earlier traditions. What, you thought there was only one nativity in all of history? Well, ask me later about the whole host of divine beings who have been counted as world saviors down through the centuries. Anyway, your question for this, the 23rd Day of my 25 Days of Winter Holiday Trivia is:
What is the name of the Roman god whose birth from the Mother Rock was observed by nearby shepherds? 
Bonus question: Who were the primary followers of this deity's mystery religion? 

Go ahead and submit your answer to today's and previous questions. See the notes below for details on how to participate in my 25 Days of Winter Holiday Trivia (and maybe win a gift card)!

Contest Notes:

Remember, my 25 Days of Winter Holiday Trivia is an actual contest. If you want to participate, all you have to do is send me your answer to each question I've posted (and for which I have not yet posted the answer). I'll start posting answers on Wednesday, but will likely only go through the first week of trivia. So you still have time to go back through the posted questions and rack up some points.

Points? Yes! The three folks who rack up the most points in my trivia game will receive a gift card!

If you want to participate, simply message me your answers. Don't post in the comments unless you don't mind sharing your work. (Just DM me on Twitter, private message me on FB, or use the contact info on this blog to email me).
