Chastity (Roman)

was a virtue deified by the Romans, and represented on the reverse of a medal of Faustina the younger, sitting, and dressed in the habit of a Roman matron, holding a sceptre in her hand, with two doves at her feet. Juvenal sarcastically says she was once upon our earth in the reign of Saturn, but that she quitted it about the time Jupiter began to have a beard.
