or Honos. The personification of honour at Rome, to whom temples were built both by Marcellus (B.C. 212) and by Marius (B.C. 101), close to the temples of Virtus. Marcellus also built one to Virtus; and the two deities are frequently mentioned together. Honor and Virtus are represented on coins as youthful figures—Honor wearing a bay-leaf chaplet, and Virtus a helmet. See Virtus.
