History
The Cornucopia (Latin; cornu (horn) and copia (stock)) is called the Horn of Plenty in Dutch. This legendary item, which (as the name suggests) brought abundance, originated in Greek mythology.

Allegory of the River Tiber with a cornucopia in hand
According to the myth, the Cornucopia is the horn of the goat Amalthea, who nursed Zeus in Crete. In thanks, Zeus placed her in the sky as a constellation and her horn gave its holder whatever he or she desired.
