PIETAS (pronounced PIE-eh-tass) is the Roman Goddess of devotion. She represents both devotion to the Gods and to one's own family. She was often featured on coins, symbolizing both the devotion of the Roman state to its people and of the people to the state. Pietas is usually depicted standing next to an altar fire, with her hands lifted in prayer. In some depictions, she holds a patera (a ritual dish) or a censer. In still others, she either holds a baby or stands with children at her sides. Pietas' name means "duty."
