In ancient Roman religion, Concordia is the goddess who embodies agreement in marriage and society. Her Greek equivalent is Harmonia, with musical harmony a metaphor for an ideal of social concord. As such, she is more closely related to the Greek concept of homonoia (like-mindedness), which was also represented by a goddess.
