the Roman personification of manly valour. She was represented with a short tunic, her right breast uncovered, a helmet on her head, a spear in her left hand, a sword in the right, and standing with her right foot on a helmet. There was a golden statue of her at Rome, which Alaricus, king of the Goths, melted down. (Liv. 27.25, 29.11; V. Max. 1.1.8; Cic. de Nat. Deor. 2.23; Zosim. 5.21.)
