CONCORDIA is the Roman Goddess of agreement and harmony. She is one of the oldest of the Roman deities, having been worshipped since the earliest days of Rome. Her temple in the Roman Forum was built in 367 BCE, and she had another temple nearby on the Capitoline Hill. Concordia was depicted either sitting or standing, holding an olive branch and a cornucopia, symbolizing the prosperity that comes with peace. She was also responsible for harmony in marriage, as revealed by her epithet CONCORDIA CONJUGALIS. Other epithets include CONCORDIA AUGUSTA (harmony of the emperor), CONCORDIA MILITARIS (harmony of the army), and CONCORDIA PROVINCIARUM (harmony of the provinces).
