Charis and Tyche were allegories, the latter having been represented sitting because happiness does not stand fast.
This divinity is sometimes identified with Tyche, sometimes with Ananke.
In the later classical age every one had its impersonation of sculptured image—the Tyche of the City.
"That is the image of the goddess of fate—that is a Tyche," said Petrus.
The monuments of Quietus and of Tyche are the finest examples of the altar type at Pompeii.
Fortuna, courted by all nations, was in Greek Tyche, or the goddess of chance.
