�quitas is the nominative form of the Latin �quitatem, meaning justice, equality, conformity, symmetry, or fairness, and is the source of the modern word "equity".[1] In ancient Rome, it could refer to either the legal concept of equity, or fairness between individuals. [2][3]

In Roman mythology, Aequitas, also known as Aecetia, was the minor goddess of fair trade and honest merchants.[citation needed] Like Abundantia, she is depicted with a cornucopia, representing wealth from commerce. She is also shown holding a balance, representing equity and fairness. During the Roman Empire, Aequitas was sometimes worshipped as a quality or aspect of the emperor, under the name Aequitas Augusti.[citation needed]
In the movie The Boondock Saints, one of the two brothers has Aequitas tattooed on his index finger.
