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]
Aequitas is the source of the word equity, and also means "equality" or "justice".
