Magical Image of the Second Face of Leo in Picatrix

In the second face of Leo  ascends an image with hands lifted up, and a man on whose head is a Crown; he has the appearance of an angry man, and one that threatens, having in his right hand a Sword drawn out of the scabbard, & in his left a buckler; it hath signification upon hidden contentions, and unknown victories, & upon base men, and upon the occasions of quarrels and battles.

Picatrix commentary

It is easy to see why Mathers chose Victory as the title.
