This is the fourth coin in the series(Roman & Greek Goddess).
If you lived in a city in Ancient Greece and wanted it to be prosperous, you gave offering to the goddess Tyche. The daughter of Aphrodite and either Zeus or Hermes (we’re not sure as the Greek gods did more shagging than Austin Powers…), she basically got blamed for anything bad happening, like floods or droughts.
Widely admired across the Greek World, her temple in Alexandria, the Tychaeon, was said by contemporaries to be one of the finest in the Hellenistic World. She was a popular subject for coins and it’s of little surprise that she made the transition to the Roman pantheon with relative ease, this time as Fortuna. As with the Greeks, she remained the personification of luck, even surviving past the fall of Rome into the Renaissance period.
