Statue of Pax in the garden of Pavlovsk Palace

In Roman mythology, Pax (Latin for peace) (her Greek equivalent was Eirene) was recognized as a goddess during the rule of Augustus. On the Campus Martius, she had a temple called the Ara Pacis, and another temple on the Forum Pacis. She was depicted in art with olive branches, a cornucopia and a scepter. There was a festival in her honor on January 3. Daughter of Jupiter and Iustitia. Pax was often associated with spring.

 Marcus Aurelius Probus was a great general who rebelled against Florian successfully in 276 AD. He fought and pacified the entire empire, but met his end when he enraged his troops - now with nobody left to fight - by having them plant vinyards and do other non-military work, and was murdered by them in 282 AD.
