Τύχη εὐέλπις

a shrine ascribed to Servius Tullius by Plutarch, who calls it ἱερόν (q. Rom. 74) andβωμός (de fort. Rom. 10). It was on the VICUS LONGUS on the Quirinal, and seems to have represented the combination of Fortuna and Spes that is so commonly found on coins (RE vii. 41; Rosch. i. 1538-1539 and literature cited). The Latin equivalent of εὐέλπις is not known, nor anything whatever of the history of the structure.
