Details of Roma personified

Roma was the goddess who personified the city of Rome and the Roman world. Like Minerva she is normally shown wearing a helmet and armour and commonly holds a small figure of Victory.

She sometimes carries a spear or sceptre and is often seated on a pile of captured armour. Roma appears on coins of all periods including silver siliquae struck in the 4th century AD after the pagan gods were abandoned in favour of Christianity.
