Hence,   the ambivalence of her  function suggested in the etymological relationship of the root  ‘ venes ‘  with Latin venenum[ Poison or venom].  The Tamil equivalent for the word Venom is Visam  -- again derived from  Veni.  Now we could be certain that the  Roman'  venus   is the corrupted form of the Tamil name Veni  or  Velli. .
