Legend has it that while Zeus (Jupiter) was playing with Amalthea, the goat who had nursed him in a cave on the island of Crete, and gave him everything he needed to survive, he accidentally broke off one of her horns. To make amends, he promised that from that day on, the horn would always be filled with whatever she desired. From this, the Cornicopia came to symbolize the unasked profusion of gifts from the gods. The symbol was used to represent Copia, the Roman goddess of wealth and plenty; Justia, Roman goddess of justice; Spes, Roman goddess of hope and Honos, Roman deity of morality and military honour. In Masonry, it represents peace, plenty and joy for all.
