The relief of grey-brown sandstone shows the goddess Minerva
standing. She leans her weight on an oval shield.
Her attribute, an owl as symbol of cleverness, can be seen next to
her head. The gesture of her right hand appears instructive and
portrays her more as a goddess of teachers and students than as the
goddess of war.
The depiction of Minerva was once built into the wall of a house and worshiped as Saint Wendelin.
Sandstone; height 26cm, width 14cm. Dating from the second half of the 2nd century to the first half of the 3rd century.
