A visitor took a photo of the Seated Fortune statue, dated back to the first to second century. The statue represents the Roman goddess Fortuna (Fortune) as a young lady, seated on a throne. She holds a “cornucopia,” the horn of the goat Amalthaea that is filled with rich fruits and symbolic of prosperity. (Photo: Li Hao/GT)
