Beside him, appears a series of symbolic attributes, like the skin of Nemea, alluding to one of the twelve work in their mythical epic. Goddess of Victory is who appears crowning him, granting him the crown of laurel leaves of the Victory. Beside the Goddess appears a Nike or Victory that extolling the victorious apothegm.
