Virtus was a specific virtue in Ancient Rome. It carries connotations of valor, manliness, excellence, courage, character, and worth (perceived masculine strengths, which may indicate its derivation from vir, "man"). It was thus a frequently stated virtue of Roman emperors, and was personified as a deity.
