Depictions of Nike (Victoria to the Romans) in which the goddess is only partially clothed begin in the 4th century B.C. Several Hellenistic marbles are known depicting her standing on a trophy (see nos. 618-619 in A. Goulaki-Voutira and U. Grote, "Nike," in LIMC, vol. VI). The type continued to be popular into the Roman Imperial period, as evinced by the present example.
