Nike of Paionios

Flying figure representing victory. From the inscription found with it we can deduce that it was put up at the time of the capture of the town of Sphakteria from the Spartans, in 425 BCE.

The figure originally had wings, now mostly missing, and is landing gently on her left foot, with her drapery blown against her body. It originally stood near the temple of Zeus on a triangular pillar about 6 metres high, which can still be seen in situ at Olympia

Purchased 23 May 1877 by the Fitzwilliam Museum from the casting establishment of the Berlin Museum. Transferred to the Museum in 1884. Inscription purchased in 1884 from Berlin?
