My loveliest Victory:

Trajan, AD 98-117
AR - denarius, 3.27g, 18.0mm
       Rome AD 101-102
obv. IMP CAES NERVA TRAIAN AVG GERM
        head, laureate, r.
rev. PM TRP COS IIII PP
       Victory inscribing shield set on cippus, foot on helmet
RIC II, 66; C. 247; BMC 112
about UNC, superb mint luster, sharp, light toning
from Forum Ancient Coins, thanks!

Strack, Trajan, p.107: "A depiction which points to the end of a war or a campaign after a gained victory here as well as similar on the Trajan's column after the termination of the first Dacian war."(Curtis Clay)  

Pat Lawrence: It's the type of "Victoria of Brescia". And she is a variant of "Aphrodite of Capua". It is suggested that the "Victoria of Brescia" originally was a Venus too, whom were added wings later. And that is the reason for this half-nude erotic depiction.

Jochen


Nice One Jochen..

Now I change my mind now the Victory .. but Lead seal:

 'two Victories in two bigas to right',

Hi quadrans!

2 Victories is actually surprising!

You can find nice Victories in provincial coinage too. Here 2 types from Nicopolis ad Istrum:

(1)
Moesia inferior, Nikopolis ad Istrum, Caracalla, AD 198-217
AE 28, 13.09g, 27.80mm, 30°
struck under governor Aurelius Gallus
obv. AV.K.M.AV. - ANTWNINOC
       Bust, draped and cuirassed, seen from behind, laureate, r.
rev. VPA AUR GALLOV NIKOPOLIT. / PROC ICTRO      
       Nike, winged, in slow biga advancing r., holding reins in r. hand and in raised l.
       hand wreath and palm branch.
ref. a) AMNG I/1, 1546 var. (1 ex., Rollin, wreath not mentioned)
      b) Varbanov (engl.) 3093 var. (has ICTRW in ex.)
      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2013) No. 8.18.9.10 (plate coin)
rare, nice dark green patina
Thanks to Pete Burbules!

(2)
Moesia inferior, Nikopolis ad Istrum , Caracalla, AD 198-217
AE 27, 12.7g, 26.99mm, 45°
struck under governor Aurelius Gallus
obv. AV.K.M.AVRHLI - ANTWNINOC
       bust, draped and cuirassed, seen from behind, laureate, r.
rev. VP AVR GALLOV - NIKO - POLITWN / PROC ICTR
       Nike, in long double chiton,  stg. l., leaning with l. ellbow on small column, holding  
       long palm  in her l. hand and wreath in lowered r. hand.
ref. a) AMNG I/1, 1545 (2 ex., Paris, Vaillant)
      b) Varbanov (engl.) 3080
      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2013) No. 8.18.9.2 (plate coin
rare, about VF
One of the nicest Victory attitudes, a bit lascivious and reminding of Aphrodite.

Best regards

Here is an example from Cappadocia, Caesarea. Victory is tired and seated on a globe (why not?).
