Abundantia to the Romans, Euthenia to the Greeks, personified abundance or plenty. Her attributes are stalks of grain and the cornucopia. She can be standing or seated and is often shown emptying a cornucopia..

Abundantia, her Greek name is Euthenia, stands for abundance or plenty. Abundantia resembles Annona. But Annona was limited to the grain supply for the current year, whereas Abundantia was a prodigal distributor of all kinds of things. Her attributes are stalks of grain and the cornucopia. Clothed in a long robe, and wearing a veil, she can be seated or standing and is sometimes shown emptying a cornucopia.
