Fortuna

Fortuna
Fortuna, the Roman goddess of good fortune was usually shown with a ship's rudder and a cornucopia full of food and flowers. The rudder meant that she would steer people safely home and the cornucopia showed that the goddess would bring good things to her worshippers.
This white marble figure is from the Mediterranean (on loan from the British Museum).
