Libertas is the Roman Goddess of liberty and freedom; Her name simply means 'Liberty'. She is in origin one of the Goddesses Who began as an abstract concept or virtue that was then deified; as such She was, like many others of the same kind of Goddess, often used and misused for political purposes. She was generally portrayed wearing the Phyrgian cap as a symbol of liberty, though I have chosen here to portray Her free of any ornament, as that seemed appropriate. The most well-known representation of Libertas in modern times is the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, though the statue is of course seen through a late 19th century French lens (the rayed crown was quite uncommon on Her depictions in Roman times).
