Details of Providentia personified

Providentia is the personification of foreseeing. She is normally draped and holds a rod which she points downwards, often at a globe placed at her feet. Occasionally she is shown holding the globe. Providentia appears on coins from the reign of Trajan until the early 4th century AD. Coin inscriptions often specify the foresight of the gods (Providentia Deorum), of the emperor (Providentia Augusti) and of the senate (Providentia Senatus).
