Fortuna, the divine embodiment of luck and fortune.
In his work 'Consolations of Philosophy,' Boethius portrays Fortuna as a capricious and fickle deity, embodying the ever-changing nature of worldly affairs. She holds dominion over the unpredictable aspects of human existence, bestowing favors and blessings upon some while subjecting others to the whims of misfortune. 
Boethius asserts that mortals should not be ensnared by the deceptive allure of Fortuna's favor, nor should they succumb to despair in the face of her adversity. He advises seeking solace in the eternal and immutable virtues that transcend the ebb and flow of Fortuna's influence.
