Security, freedom from danger, safety — personified as the tutelary goddess of the Roman State. The Romans revered her as the goddess in whose hands the security of the Roman Empire rested.


She was portrayed as a matron standing with legs crossed, her left elbow leaning on a column, and her right hand resting on her head. Next to her were a spear, a cornucopia, and a oil or palm branch.
