Product Description

Goddess Nike was the winged goddess of victory, both in battle and peaceful competition. When Zeus was gathering allies at the start of the Titan  War Styx brought her four children, Nike (Victory), Zelos Rivalry), Kratos (Strength) and Bia (Force) into the service of the god. Nike was appointed his charioteer, and all four were appointed as sentinels standing beside the throne of the god. Nike was depicted in ancient Greek  art with a variety of attributes including a wreath or sash to crown a victor, an oinochoe and phiale (bowl and cup) for libations, a thymiaterion (incense burner), an altar, and a lyre for the celebration of victory in song. In scenes of the Gigantomachia (War of the Giants) she often appears driving the chariot of Zeus. In mosaic art and coins Nike isoften shown holding a palm branch as a symbol of victory. Nike was closely identified with the goddess Athena, sometimes appearing merely as an attribute of the goddess.
