Professor Abacus, the self-proclaimed "Father of Mathology", has discovered a mathematical correlation with some of the figures of Roman mythology. Make the following equation correct by replacing each letter with a numeral (0 through 9). Each letter can represent only one numeral, and each numeral can only be represented by one letter. There are no leading 0's. Find one of the two possible solutions.

SATURN + VENUS + CERES = VULCAN

Her'e about all I've come up with the start. Starting with the last letters of each word: N + S + S = N So S has to equal 5 Because SATURN has 6 letters and VENUS and CERES only have 5, then it follows that V is not greater than 2 from S. So V = 6 or 7 That's a start at least.
