Virtus, the genius of the Commonwealth, dressed like an Amazon, resting on a spear with one hand, and holding a sword in the other, and treading on Tyranny, represented by a man prostrate, a crown fallen from his head, a broken chain in his left hand, and a scourge in his right. In the exergon, the word ‘ Virginia ’ over the head of Virtus; and underneath, the words ‘ Sic Semper Tyrannis.’--Boston Transcript, May 8.
