Concordia

In Roman mythology, Concordia was the goddess of agreement and understanding. Her oldest temple was on the Forum Romanum. It was built in 367 BC by Camilus[?]. The Roman Senate often met there.

In art, Concordia was depicted sitting, wearing a long cloak and holding onto a sacrificial bowl and a cornucopia. Sometimes, she is shown standing between two members of the Royal House shaking hands.
