Details of Annona personified

Annona is the female personification of the grain supply on which the city of Rome depended.

She is normally shown draped and holds corn-ears and a cornucopia (making her easily confused with Ceres). Other attributes associated with Annona are a modius (corn measure) and a ship’s prow, both of which are shown at her feet.

Annona appears on coins produced between the mid 1st and late 3rd century AD.
