Nike The Goddess of Victory

Written by Alok Mohan on April 27, 2022. Posted in Uncategorized

#Nike : Called #Victoria by the #Romans, Goddess of #Victory, is described as a daughter of Pallas and Styx (Early #Greek #God of #battles)
and as a sister of #Zelus (zeal) #Cratos (strength), and #Bia (force). Athletes who wanted to win worshipped her. Even today, she has some significance to athletes. If you look carefully you may notice a striking similarity between Nike’s wings and a famous swoosh symbol found on sneakers

Nike’s name means Victory, and the Roman equivalent of Nike was Victoria
Nike had a celebrated temple on the acropolis of Athens. It is still extant. In appearance
she resembled #Athena, but had wings, and carried a #palm or a #wreath, and was engaged in raising a trophy, or in inscribing the victory of the conqueror
on a shield. Her most famous statue was erected by Augustus to commemorate his victory at
#Actiumn as this goddess had influence over victory and competition. She has the ability to be able to foresee victories and can grant victory. She could also curse people.
Frequently portrayed on the Indo-Greek coins, Nike was equally honoured by the rulers of both the feuding houses. She is portrayed either independently in the conventional as well as an unconventional form, or as standing on the palm of Zeus, or less
frequently on that of Heracles or of Pallas. She is shown with wings, holding wreath and palm. In some
unconventional portraits, she wears pilei, the caps peculiar to #Dioscuroi and is dressed like #Artemis.
#Styx brought Nike and her three sisters, #Zeus (Zeal/power), #Bia(Force) and #Kralas (Strength) to Zeus to assist him in the great Titan battle, whose ultimate goal was to gain control of the #Mount Olympus.
