HONOS AND VIRTUS
The Latin personifications of honour and warlike courage. [Cic., Verr. ii 4, 121.] Marcus Marcellus, the famous conqueror of Syracuse (B.C. 212), added to an already existing shrine dedicated to Honos another to Virtus, and united them both in one building, which he adorned with the masterpieces of Greek art which he had carried off from Syracuse. Marius built a second temple from the booty gained in the Cimbrian War (B.C. 101). Upon coins they are both represented as youthful figures, with tresses; Honos with a chaplet of bay-leaves and cornucopia, and Virtus with a richly ornamented helmet.
