From the reign of Augustus onward, Lady Justice was a prominent female allegory within the empire and justice was a celebrated virtue of Roman culture. Following Augustus, the emperor Tiberius built the Temple of Iustitia in Rome in honor of Lady Justice. Vespasian would later mint coins with the image of the female allegory seated on a throne.
Lady Justice is always depicted with a variety of common symbols that have different meanings. For example, the blindfold she wears is a symbol of the perceived impartiality of the justice system. The scales she holds reflect the competing points from either side of an argument. The sword she wields is a symbol of the swift and sometimes deadly nature of justice.
