    The so-called “Tellus Panel,” Ara Pacis Augustae, Rome. Relief featuring a veiled woman sitting on a stone throne. Infants sit in her lap, as does a collection of various fruits of the harvest. She is flanked by two personifications, perhaps of “Land” and “Sea.” This identity of this figure could be the earth mother Tellus, the nation of Italia, and/or a variety of other goddesses/personified virtues, depending on viewer association.
