Minerva with helmet, spear and shield holding a winged Victoria Victoria, the Roman goddess of victory Just as the picture depicts the role of Victoria, the Roman goddess of victory, was connected with the victors of war, who she was believed to be able to determine. She was a favorite amongst Roman generals returning from war. Successful Roman military leaders returned from a victorious battle would be awarded the honor of a 'Triumph', a triumphal procession, or parade celebrating the glory of the returning general through the cheering crowds on the streets of Rome. The Romans called this ritual a “triumph” because the victorious troops cried “io triumpe” as they marched through the streets. The conquering hero rode in a gilded chariot led by white horses wearing a tunica covered in palm leaves, under an gold embroidered, red toga, with his face painted red. The face of the triumphator was painted with red paint to imitate the red-painted face of the statues of Mars, the god of war or Jupiter, the King of the gods. Victoria was a symbol of victory over death and her role was to to reward the victors in battle. The Emperor Augustus had an altar to the goddess Victoria installed in the senate building, the Curia Julia, with a statue of the winged Victoria, called a victoriola, symbolically standing with one foot on a globe. A victoriola was given to a victorious general and symbolized a gift of victory and was highly prized for the renown it bestowed on its owner. MINT& COMPLETE. WEARABLE. Metal detector find.
