Details of Pietas personified

Pietas is the female personification of dutifulness. She is normally draped and holds either a patera (sacrificial dish) and a sceptre or an incense box (as here). In both cases she is sacrificing and an altar is commonly shown at her feet. Pietas appears on coins from the late 2nd century BC until the mid 4th century AD.
