View Categories Home > Catalog > |Roman Coins| > |The Secessionist Empires| > |Carausius| > RA73478Romano-British Empire, Carausius, Mid 286 - Spring or Early Summer 293 A.D. Providentia is the personification of the ability to foresee and make provision. She was among the embodiments of virtues that were part of the Imperial cult of ancient Rome. Providentia figures in art, cult, and literature, but has little or no mythology as such.
