|Nike was the winged goddess or spirit of victory both in battle and peaceful competition|
|Nike crowning Ares|
She is often seen represent in ancient work of art, especially together with other divinities, such as Zeus, Athena, and with conquering heros whose horses she guides. In her appearance she resembles Athena but has wings and carries a palm or a wreath and is engaged in raising a trophy, in inscribing the victory of the conqueror on a shield.
