Victoria was the Roman goddess of victory. She was normally depicted with wings and often carrying trophies from defeated enemies. Victoria was identified with the Greek goddess Nike.
Victoria usually appeared in reliefs on the spandrels of triumphal arches, such as the Arch of Augustus, the Arch of Septimius Severus and the Arch of Constantine. She also appeared often on coins, until the 3rd century CE.
The cult of Victoria was one of the last pagan cults to succumb to Christianity.
