Latin Abbreviation: Victoria Sarmatica - Victory over the Sarmatians.
The Sarmatians (Latin: Sarmatae or Sauromatae) were a large confederation of Iranian people during classical antiquity, flourishing from about the 5th century B.C. to the 4th century A.D. They spoke Scythian, an Indo-European language from the Eastern Iranian family. The Sarmatians moved to an area called Sarmatia; east of Germania and north of the immediate vicinity of the Danube. These barbarous and little know tribes also occupied the vast tracts of modern Russia.
