Cleme'ntia

a personification of Clemency, was worshipped as a divinity at Rome, especially in the time of the emperors. She had then temples and altars, and was represented, as we still see on coins, holding a patera in her right, and a lance in her left hand. (Claudian, De Laud. Stil. 2.6, &c.; Stat. Theb. 12.481, &c.; comp. Hirt, Mythol. Bilderbuch, ii. p. 113.)
