A cast bronze votive figure of a goddess, Tyche-Fortuna. The goddess here is draped in finely rendered classical attire, including a himation that is draped around her waist and rests on one elbow.

Not attached to the pedestal . From the collection of EU gentlemen living in UK, previously from the stock of USA dealer.

Fortuna was one of the most common deities worshipped in a domestic context, and she is often depicted, as she is here, with a sign of her wealth – the modius – in order to bring prosperity and luck. You can imagine standing before this beautiful figure on a home altar, asking the goddess to bring wealth to your family and friends.
