About the name Annona

Annona, the Roman Goddess of Grain, Commerce and the personification of plenty. She is also closely connected to Ceres, Goddess of Agriculture.

She is typically shown with her foot on the prow of a ship or holding the rudder and in her other hand holding a cornucopia or sheaves of wheat. Grain was very symbolic to the Romans as it represented independence. A society that was not dependent for food from outside sources was considered prosperous.
