Roman Republic, P. Accoleius Lariscolus, 43 B.C.

Click for a larger photo
At her sacred grove on the shores of Lake Nemi, Diana was venerated as a triple goddess, a threefold unity of the divine huntress, Artemis, the Moon goddess, Luna, and the goddess of the nether world, Hekate. These were neither different goddesses nor an amalgamation of different goddesses. They were Diana...Diana as huntress, Diana as the moon, Diana of the underworld. The reverse of this coin is believed to depict an archaic cult statue of Diana that stood in her sanctuary in her sacred grove on the shore of Lake Nemi: Artemis with the bow at one extremity, Luna-Selene with flowers at the other and presumably Hekate in the center, all supporting a beam holding five cypress trees. This is an Etruscan image dating to the 6th century B.C. Two heads, found in the sanctuary and the Roman theater at Nemi, have a hollow on their back, presumably to support a similar beam uniting three forms.
