Trivia Question: Which mythical character does the Statue of Liberty represent?
The Roman goddess Libertas
The Greek goddess Athena
The Greek goddess Eleutheria
The Roman goddess Bellona
In Roman mythology, Libertas was the female personification of liberty and personal freedom, so it’s only fitting that this figure was the inspiration for Frédéric Bartholdi as he dreamt up his vision for the colossal statue in New York Harbor. You can see this influence in her tablet inscribed in Roman numerals and the torch she holds representing freedom.
The Answer: The correct answer is The Roman goddess Libertas.
