16mm.approx.1/2 inch coin with Goddess Victory displaying beautiful wings,drives a fast Biga.L.Saufeius.c.152 BC.The Greek goddess Nike, often known as Victory in English (e.g. Winged Victory of Samothrace). was a goddess who personified triumph and victory. Nike and her siblings were all companions of Zeus.She was effectively treated as a bringer of good luck and was often assimilated with other gods, for instance being depicted by Greek sculptors as a tiny winged figure perching on another god's arm, peeping out from a fellow god's clothes or flying above like a winged fairy. In her best-known depictions, such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace (now in the Louvre, Paris), she is shown as a naked or armoured winged figure. In the Greek colonies of southern Italy she was depicted as a charioteer. Nike unfastening her sandal ("Nike Slancio"), is now on display in the Acropolis Museum in Athens. Museum quality coin with beautiful toning. Set in a 14Karat white gold bezel 100% Guaranteed Authentic!
