The empress is depicted as the goddess Fortuna or Bounty, symbolised by the cornucopia, or horn of plenty. A cloak covers Livia’s head, indicating that she had already added Julia Augusta to her name as the wife and then widow of Emperor Augustus. She was deified by her nephew Claudius in the year 41 AD.
