File 139640050560.jpg - (867.15KB , 1444x1014 , gpo.jpg )

Discussion about historic buildings.
More to what I want to know, the GPO Dublin, essentially where the English buck was stopped by Mikey C and the boys, has three statues atop it: Hibernia, Mercury and Fidelity.
Problem is I cannot find any trace of "Fidelity" as a deity or otherwise in mythology or historic beliefs. The statue in question appears female, has a dog at its feet and a key in hand, It's my oppinion the statue is actually Hecaté (Goddess of Poison, witchcraft, household blessings, actually quite suitable for Ireland), what think?

Fidelity is probably a representation of Penelope.

Penelope and dogs are idealized faithful companions.
