The symbol of victory (laurel wreath) in Nike's right hand, joined with the ships stylis in her left suggestsa referenceto Greece's great and famous naval victory over Persia in the battle of Salamis in 480 B.C. Many historians believe that a Persian victory would have changed the course of Western civilization. It is, therefore, considered one of the most significant battles in human history.
Alexander was one of the greatest leaders and military tacticians to have ever lived. His Empire covered an enormous portion of the Earth's surface and his influence on western culture is so profound that it is hard to underestimate. Alexander and his new Macedonian army, composed of highly effective Phalanx units, were responsible for the 'hellenization' of lands as far away as the Hindu Kush in modern-day Pakistan-Afghanistan.
