The Latin personification of concord or harmony, especially among Roman citizens. Shrines were repeatedly erected to Concordia during the republican period after the cessation of civil dissensions. The earliest was dedicated by Camillus in B.C. 367. The goddess Concordia was also invoked, together with Ianus, Salus, and Pax, at the family festival of the Caristia, on the 30th of March, and, with Venus and Fortuna, by married women on the 1st of April. (See Manes.) During the imperial period Concordia Augusta was worshipped as the protectress of harmony, especially of matrimonial agreement, in the emperor's household.
