ΟΣ ΚΑΡΤΕΡΗ ΝΙΚΑ - Help with Translation

Postby malevras » Wed May 28, 2014 11:40 pm


My friend asked me what this means. I speak modern Greek but I have limited experience with Ancient Greek. I think that ΟΣ is "who" and NIKA is "conquers or wins". Can someone help me to confirm the meaning of this phrase? My friend saw it on a fireplace (randomly) in Connecticut and both of us have been researching online to confirm the meaning to no avail.
