In this paper we analyze a female white marble sculpture recovered in 2007 in an excavation in the Roman necropolis of La Boatella (Valencia). It is split into three fragments found in a half-built pit with several funerary inscriptions and other architectural elements. The sphere that remains on your right, on which rests the rudder missing attribute allows identifying it with the goddess Fortune. The sculpture is of a type that is dated in the late Hellenistic period and should be used for the representation of various divinities, including Hygeia, goddess of health, and specifically the Chiaramonti variant. The position of the arms allowed to adapt the type, with very slight modifications, to the peculiarities of other deities as Fortuna. The analysis has revealed that marble comes from the island of Paros (Greece).
