Subject Description: The seated, draped goddesses in the pediments of the Parthenon on the Acropolis were adapted for use as individual statues of divinities and of empresses or other notable women. Since the figure sits on a large rock rather than a throne, a goddess seems to have been intended, perhaps a major deity such as Hera (known in ancient Rome as Juno), who was the consort of Zeus (the Roman Jupiter), the ruler of the divinities who lived on Mount Olympus in northern Greece. There is, however, the strong posibilitythat this statue commemorated a Roman empress or even that it was intended as a memorial statue of a private citizen of renown.
