Roman mythology

Hi, all. :D

I've tried various searches on this, but I just can't find the *perfect* answer, so I'm wondering what all of you know about it --

Roman mythology. But not just general mythology - what I mean is, mythology set in Rome, that comes specifically from Rome, if you know what I mean. For my story, it needs to be related to magic somehow. So, basically: Magic mythology set in Rome. LOL. I talk in circles.

Do you know of any? I'd really appreciate any and all help you can give me. Even if you could just hint to some half-remembered story, that'd give me somewhere to start researching!

ETA: I apologise for how vague this question was. What I meant was, has anyone ever heard of any myths relating to any sort of wizard- or druid-type figure that had lived in Rome? I'm looking for something really obscure, something that isn't available by just opening a Roman mythology book or surfing a mythology website. That was what I meant by 'half-remembered' story. I have searched, and have been researching this particular matter for weeks, in fact, but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. I wasn't very optimistic to begin with, but I had sort of hoped that because there are so many members in this community, that one of you may have heard that one perfectly obscure reference. Nevermind.

Thanks anyway. :D And a very happy holidays to you (belated, I know).
