This Victoria, the goddess of victory in ancient Roman mythology, is part of a monument to Johann Andreas von Liebenberg (1627-1683) who was the mayor of Vienna from 1680 to 1683. He had primary responsibility for the resistance of the Viennese during the siege by the Ottoman Empire in 1683. Unfortunately he died two days before the decisive battle took place.
