Nike assumed the role of the divine charioteer, a role in which she often is portrayed in Classical Greek art.
Nike flew around battlefields rewarding the victors with glory and fame, symbolized by a wreath of Laurel leaves.
Nike is seen with wings in most statues and paintings, one of the most famous being the Winged Victory of Samothrace.
Nike is the goddess of strength, speed, and victory.
Nike was a very close acquaintance of Athena, and is thought to have stood in Athena's outstretched hand in the statue of Athena located in the Parthenon.
Nike is one of the most commonly portrayed figures on Greek coins. The original coin was from 452 bc.
