Concordia was the divine personification of harmony in ancient Rome, representing unity and agreement.

The goddess had no true mythology, but her cult played an important role in the ideology of Republican and Imperial Rome. Concordia’s first temple was erected on the lower slopes of the Capitoline in 367 BCE, emerging as a symbol of Roman solidarity during a time of political upheaval.

During subsequent periods of the Roman Republic and Empire, the usage of Concordia tended to be connected with political disturbances and the impulse to reestablish harmony. In order to emphasize political unity, various Roman leaders renovated and expanded Concordia’s existing temple, constructed new temples, and placed her image on coins.[1]
