Greek mythology and the Bible make up a great deal of literary allusions or references.

I learned about a new Greek goddess today, from my brother and his wife who are vacationing in Athens.

Nike is the goddess of victory. She is winged.

Her Roman equivalent is Victoria.

She is the sister of:

Kratos (Strength)

Bia (Force)

Zelus (Zeal)

In considering the fortitude necessary for victory, it is logical that these entities be related on Mount Olympus.

I look forward to a possible trip to Athens in the future.
