Didyma 2007 4405.jpg

This is one side of a large block with decoration on several sides that now stands near the ticket office. I would appreciate it if some knowledgeable person could help me identify the (?) goddess one sees here.

At Didyma the goddess Hekate was worshipped as Angelos (Angel / Messenger) and depicted with wings...

I also think this is Nike. And I would guess that this block was once meant to be a corinthian capital from the acanthus sprouts substituting for her legs?
