Diana, the twin sister of Apollo, was not only the goddess of the hunt and of childbirth, but she was also identified with Luna, the moon. As the goddess of the moon, she wears a long robe which reaches down to her feet, a veil sometimes covers her head, and above her forehead or on her shoulders she bears the crescent of the moon. In her hand she typically appears holding a torch -- symbolic of moonlight -- as on many Roman imperial coins depicting her as Diana Lucifera ("Diana, the light-bearer"). Here are a couple of my Diana Lucifera coins. Let's see yours! Here she represents the deified Faustina II in the heavens: Faustina II, AD 161-175.
