39 Laetitia

This minor planet is named after the Roman goddess of gaiety. She is a minor figure, and is sometimes an epithet of Ceres.

The symbol of this minor planet is a wreath, in the form of a small circle, and an anchor. The anchor and wreath is a common symbol of this goddess, jointly representing stable fortune, as can be seen in the coinage below.
