Roma Bust Sculpture, 20th Century
A stunning Roma bust sculpture, 20th century. In ancient Roman religion, Roma was a female deity who personified the city of Rome and more broadly, the Roman state. Her image appears on the base of the column of Antoninus Pius. She embodied Rome in complex ways and symbolized the ideal woman in society. Roman political and religious ideas were portrayed through Roma in the different forms of media: coins, sculptures and designs on architecture. Roma was a construction of Roman state patronage. Though her depictions have been influenced by other goddesses at the time, Roma still stood out as a symbol of Rome. Some of these deities include: Tyches, Minerva. In Roman art and coinage, she was usually depicted with a military helmet, and often other military equipment, although in the Greek-speaking east she more often wore a mural crown, signifying Rome's status as a loyal protector of Hellenic city-states. She survived into the Christian period, joining the Tyches of other cities, now as a pure personification. In groups of these she can usually be distinguished by the helmet, as the others wear mural crowns representing their city walls. She often appears on coins, and her depiction seated with a shield and spear later influenced Britannia. Media played a big part on portraying Roma. She was depicted on many different items throughout Rome. These includes: Silver Cup, Coins, Sculptures, Arches.
