This relief is a replica of an original excavated at the Limes in Trier. Nowadays it is part of the collection of the Landesmuseum in Stuttgart. The relief depicts the goddess Fortuna with a chiton and underneath it a tunica. Living near the Limes was much colder than warm Italy, this is why women often wore a tunica or peplos under the chiton.
Fortuna, or Fanum Fortunae, was the Roman goddess of coincidence, both good luck and misfortune.
This relief is made of plaster alabaster and measures 35 x 20 cm. At the back it is provided with a hole to hang it to the wall.
