these figures in relief are from a balustrade, or railing, that enclosed a small temple to athena nike, the conquering athena, on a jutting spur of the acropolis. nike is represented many times performing many fears. here she gracefully fastens a loosened sandal and hangs a trophy. these reliefs are from the outer surface of the balustrade and the originals are in the acropolis museum, athens.
