Description
Victoria on top of the Huitfeldt Column in The Port of Copenhagen. In Roman mythology, Victoria was the personification, Goddess of victory. She is the Roman version of the Greek goddess Nike, and was associated with Bellona. She was adapted from the Sabine agricultural goddess Vacuna and had a temple on the Palatine Hill. Her name (in both Latin and Greek) means victory.

Unlike the Greek Nike, Victoria was a major part of Roman society. Multiple temples were erected in her honor, and a vast cult existed for hundreds of years, worshiping her. Appearing on Roman coins, jewelry, architecture, and other arts, Victoria is most often seen with or in a chariot.
