* Chlamys = was a type of a Ancient Greek Cloak that was part of the Roman Emperor’s and other High Official’s Costume during the Roman Byzantine Empire  * ~

* Victory   was Victoria, who in ancient Roman mythology was the goddess of victory, having a temple on Palatine Hill, and was the equivalent of the Greek goddess Nike.  Multiple temples were established in her honor. Unlike the Greek Nike, the goddess Victoria (Latin for Victory), was a major part of the Society of Rome.  When Emperor Gratianus removed her statue in 382 CE, there was much anger in Rome.  She was normally worshiped by triumphant generals returning to Rome from war.  Victoria was a symbol of victory over death and determined who would be successful during war.  Victoria was the charioteer for Zeus in his battle to take over Mount Olympus.  *
