Although she was a daughter of Zeus and Aphrodite. she was reputed to be quite irresponsible. She preferred to run about juggling a ball than to carry the Cornucopia filled with golden fruit, instead entrusting the task to her assistant Plutus. She was usually honored in a more favorable light as Eutykhia, goddess of good fortune, luck, success and prosperity. The first set of dice ever made were found in Tyche's temple. The Greek Palamedes, was thought to have created the first pair of dice during the battle of Troy in 484bc. and dedicated them to Tyche. The dice perhaps indicate the capriciousness of life and luck and the fickle manner in which she decided the fortunes of mortals. "Fortune" has a broader implication than material wealth. It is also intrinsically connected to the vagaries of fate and the degree of luck one encounters in life. On another plane again, it is also about the growth of our spiritual, physical, mental selves, and those of our neighbors. Increasingly during the Hellenistic period, cities venerated their own specific iconic version of Tyche, wearing a mural crown (a crown like the walls of the city). This image is on the front or obverse of this coin. The constellation of Virgo is sometimes identified as the heavenly figure of Tyche. The Romans were inspired by the myths related to deity Tyche of the Greeks and created the Goddess Fortuna, who also represented luck, fortune and “concept” in life.
