Fortuna wears a mural crown with wreath, the wavy hair centrally parted and drawn back in a bun. The head tilted to the right, an expression of calmness spread across her oval face, lines of Venus on her neck. The Hellenistic influence evident on the subtle modelling of her brow and nose. After the Tyche of Antioch by Eutychides.
Fortuna, the Roman equivalent of Tyche, was commonly the recipient of a cult, being worshipped throughout the classical world. In return, the goddess watched over those cities which venerated her. The crown represents the defensive walls of a city, reiterating her role as their guardian, whilst the wreath which surrounds it personifies the fortune and fecudity she brings.
