The porter of heaven in Roman religion, it is he who opens the the year. The month of January is named after him.

He is the guardian of doorways (januae), gates and archways (jani), and is most frequently portrayed as having two faces because every door looks two ways. He is occasionally regarded as the god of all beginnings.

He had many temples built for him in Rome. Believed to be the protector of war, the gates to his temples were left open so that he might intervene in times of trouble.
