The lack of any attributes makes it difficult to firmly identify this figure although the sensuous curving of her body and the clinging drapery would suggest an identification with Venus. Her clothing is reminiscent of Hellenistic Tyche-Fortuna representations and Venus is later associated with Fortuna. Her head is turned slightly to the right and she gazes downwards, no doubt at an attribute held in her left hand; her right hand held up to her locks of hair.
Her facial features are particularly striking and it has been suggested that this could be a portrait of a member of the early Imperial household depicted as the goddess Venus-Fortuna.
