V for Victory

Think about it, almost everything we do personally or professionally is done with a view to succeeding or achieving a certain measure of success. Whether it is something like war which is played out on a massive scale or whether it is something intensely personal such as mastering a new skill, success is what we all aim towards.

People in the ancient world were no different- whether it was a war general building a triumphal arch or an individual dedicating tokens to a deity he/ she worshiped for success in a mission, the key was always on Victory.

I guess nothing succeeds like success.
