Portrait statue of a woman with attributes of Fortuna. The woman sits on a throne in a majestic pose, her body twisted a little to the left, and with both feet resting on a low stool. She wears a chiton, mantle and sandals, and in her hair a diadem and a fillet. In her left hand she holds a cornucopia and in her right a rudder resting on a globe. The drapery is intricately rendered, particularly around her feet. The female represented has divine status and the statue probably functioned as a grave portrait. There is damage to the tip of the nose, top of diadem, left foot, and in places to drapery. Most of the cornucopia is restored, along with part of the back of the throne, left arm, right arm and handle of rudder.
