Hispano-Roman

Standard from Pollentia

Bronze
Pollentia, Mallorca
2nd century
 

This standard belonged to a collegium for young Hispano-Roman men located on the island of Mallorca. It is decorated with appliqués representing the goddesses Isis, Fortuna and Diana. At the top of the standard is a togate youth with a protective bulla around his neck. In his right hand he holds a patera from which he pours an offering on to the altar; and in his left hand is a cornucopia, the symbol of abundance and wealth.
