Roma [1]

the personification of the city of Rome, and as such called Dea Roma. She was represented clad in a long robe, and with a helmet, in a sitting posture, strongly resembling the figures of the Greek Athena. She was in reality the genius of the city of Rome, and was worshipped as such from early times, though no temple was erected to her till the time of Augustus. After this their number increased throughout the empire.
